Oakville, ONTARIO June 4th, 2019 — For the sixth year in a row, Spark Power Group Inc. (TSX: SPG) (SPG.WT), and two-time Stanley Cup Champion, Adam Graves, will be hitting the ice together for Spark’s annual charity hockey tournament in support of Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC). This year’s Spark Power Play Challenge will be held on June 11, 2019, in Oakville, ON.
“Spark Power is very proud to continue our support with our friend, Adam Graves, and Prostate Cancer Canada for the sixth straight year,” said Jason Sparaga, Co-Founder, Co-CEO, Spark Power. “Events like Spark Power Play, are important for raising awareness in the community and generating life-saving funds that support prostate cancer research and treatment,” added Sparaga.
Spark Power will be raising money for PCC through the Spark Power Play Challenge. The fundraising team with the highest dollars raised will have the first draft picks of participating VIP hockey players they would like to play with.

“One in seven Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. This means that we all likely know someone who has faced or is facing the disease,” said two-time Stanley Cup Alumnus, Adam Graves. “Spark Power has always been a strong supporter of this cause… When it comes to cancer, early detection really is the key and we’re sharing this message with the community through camaraderie and a love of hockey. Now, what could be better than that?”
Spark Power Play sponsors include: Amp Solar, AppCentrica, BDO Canada LLP, BMO, Canaccord Genuity, e-Compliance, Element Fleet, G4S, Goodmans LLP, PCL Construction, Stature Films, and Tim Hortons.
