October 28, 2013, Prince George, B.C. (ISN) – For an 11th straight season, CN will be rewarding hard-working individuals and organizations in Prince George through the CN Community Ticket Program. Over 350 people will receive free tickets to Cougars games in 2013-2014, all of whom are responsible for promoting a safer and healthier Prince George.

In 2012-2013, tickets were allocated to the following groups: Prince George RCMP, Prince George Firefighters, Big Brothers Big Sisters Prince George, the Salvation Army, 2618 Rocky Mountain Ranger Cadet Corps, and the Carrier Sekani Family Services “Walk Tall Program.”

“Thanks to the CN Community Ticket Program, we are able to provide a fun night out for a wide variety of community groups who are making a difference in our day-to-day lives,” said Prince George Cougars Vice President Brandi Brodsky. “We’re excited about welcoming even more community groups to the CN Centre this season because of this promotion.”

Michael Cory, CN Senior Vice-President, Western region, declared: “At CN, we are committed to giving back to the communities in which we operate to make them better places to live and work. We are proud to support the CN Community Ticket Program with the Prince George Cougars and to make it possible for people who might not normally have the chance to do so to come watch the games. We wish the Cougars and their fans a wonderful season.”

In previous seasons, the CN Community Ticket Program has also helped organizations such as: Canadian Blood Services, Canadian Cancer Society, Canadian Red Cross, Community Policing Prince George, Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign, Girl Guides of Canada, Prince George Native Friendship Centre and Youth Around Prince, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and the YMCA.
