A cheque for $10

Kamloops Minor Hockey Association wins Timber Mart SharpShooter prize

prize winner, the Kamloops Minor Hockey Association will receive $5,000, with an additional $5,000 going to KidSport

The Timber Mart SharpShooter contest featured a Facebook game and a mobile phone app that required participants to play a challenging skills-based hockey game and contribute their points to their local minor hockey association.

Canadian hockey fans and supporters were able to take part in the most universal of hockey experiences – shooting on a net – through playing the fun and engaging SharpShooter game.

At the end of the contest period, those points were turned into ballots and 10 finalist teams were randomly selected. Hockey associations were then asked to submit a proposal outlining how the prize money would help both the hockey association and its youth- focused community organization of choice.

A panel of judges from the Timbrkids Foundation Board deliberated over the proposals and ultimately selected the Kamloops Minor Hockey Association as a winner. The judges felt that KidSport was an excellent program that supports the mandate of the Timbrkids Foundation, which is to support the health and well-being of Canadian youth.

As the prize winner, the Kamloops Minor Hockey Association will receive $5,000, with an additional $5,000 going to KidSport, a not-for- profit organization that provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

“Timber Mart and Timbrkids are pleased to present this cheque to the Kamloops Minor Hockey Association and to help the deserving children of KidSport,” stated Clay Stenberg, Territory Manager for Timber Mart, during the presentation.

In operation since 1967, TIM-BR MART Group is the largest buying group for Independents in Canada.  It is a member-owned organization serving building material and hardware retailers, commercial dealers and manufacturers.   TIM-BR MART Group exists to help Canadian entrepreneurs involved in the sale of building materials and hardware be more profitable.
