About the Scotiabank Pro-Am

Established in 2004, the Scotiabank Pro-Am for Alzheimer's is an innovative charitable hockey tournament that supports care and research in Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Taking place in four Canadian cities (Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver) the three-day hockey experience allows amateur hockey players the opportunity to play with and against a host of NHL alumni. To date, the Scotiabank Pro-Am has raised more than $16 million for the Gordie & Colleen Howe Fund for Alzheimer's which helps fund care and research in Alzheimer’s at Baycrest – a global leader in developing and providing innovations in aging and brain health

The Scotiabank Pro-Am for Alzheimer’s, in support of the Gordie & Colleen Howe Fund, is the ultimate hockey experience. This one-of-a-kind event allows the average weekend warriors to strap on their skates and team up with some of the greatest hockey players to ever hit the ice. The Scotiabank Pro-Am is the largest event of its kind in Canada and provides memories that will last a life time.

Raising more than $16 million in its six-year history, the Scotiabank Pro-Am for Alzheimer’s is an innovative fundraiser that offers amateur hockey players the chance to play with and against a host of NHL alumni while raising critical funds for Alzheimer’s research and care. Teams must raise a minimum of $25,000 and, based on total dollars raised, get to draft an NHL alumnus to play on their team.
