just a couple of points i want to highlight
Now the player with the jaw-dropping moves on the ice is stickhanding
his foundation toward the capital region. Kovalev intends to partner
his charity’s work with that of the Sens Foundation. It’s expected
he’ll make an initial donation of $10,000 to $15,000 from the proceeds
of his second annual charity golf tournament, which is set for Thursday
at the Elm Ridge Country Club in Île-Bizard, Que.
“We’re planning to give a donation to the Ottawa Senators Foundation to
help some kids with cardiac problems,” said Walter Valentini, the
general manager of the Kovalev and Friends For Kids Foundation.
“Alex has done a lot of work (in the past) with the Montreal Canadiens
Foundation and he wants to have to same kind of interaction with the
Ottawa Senators Foundation. We want to work together.”
Last week, the Kovalev Foundation brought 65 youngsters to a camp in
Montreal. Tomorrow’s golf tournament, which raised $160,000 last year,
is expected to be another huge success. A fundraising fashion show in
Montreal, organized by Kovalev’s wife, Eugenia, is planned for the fall.
In addition, Kovalev released a hockey tips and training DVD in March
2008 with 100 per cent of the proceeds – more than $120,000 to date –
going to his foundation.
