Duncan Keith set to make surprise appearance in special event

Hockey Hall of Famer Chris Pronger will share the stage with three-time Stanley Cup winner Duncan Keith and former Cy Young winner Eric Gagne as guest speakers for the 2024 Kinsmen Sports Celebrity Dinne.

Travis Olson, the Dinner's chairman, hopes this star-studded lineup will draw a sell-out crowd and generous support for the local service club.

"We're excited to have two hockey champions and a baseball legend joining us," Olson said. "Their presence should attract even more people to the event."

This year, the Dinner is moving to a larger venue at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds. With more space, organizers hope to set a new fundraising record.

Traditionally held at the Heritage Inn with around 500 attendees, this year's event could see over 600 guests if it sells out.

"We've got more space and flexibility at the new venue," Olson explained. "It's a bit of a change, but we're optimistic about it."

The silent and live auctions will feature unique items to boost fundraising efforts even further.

The Dinner typically raises over $100,000 for Kinsmen projects in Moose Jaw and has contributed over $2,000,000 since its inception in the mid-90s.

Olson expressed gratitude for the community's support, highlighting the impact on local projects like parks and Minor Football.

Around 300 tickets have already been sold through word of mouth, and sales are expected to pick up as news of the star-studded lineup spreads.

Tickets are available for $400 for two or $1,500 for a table of eight from any Kinsmen member or by emailing mjkinsmen@outlook.com.
