Vancouver Giants to honour Craig Cunningham in December
The Vancouver Giants are pleased to announce that former captain Craig Cunningham will be the guest of honour on Sunday, December 2 (4:00 p.m. PT) when the Giants face the Tri-City Americans at the Langley Events Centre.
That night, Cunningham will be added to the Vancouver Giants Wall of Honour during a pre-game ceremony. Additionally, the Giants will wear commemorative “All Heart” themed jerseys during warmup to help raise awareness towards Craig Cunningham’s All Heart Foundation. The warmup jerseys will then be autographed by both Craig and the individual player and sold via online auction with proceeds going towards the All Heart Foundation.
“I am forever grateful to the Vancouver Giants organization for providing me with some of the most enjoyable and important years of my life,” said Craig Cunningham who is now a professional scout with the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes. “I am so thankful to Ron Toigo and the entire Toigo family, Sultan Thiara, Scott Bonner, Don Hay, my billets, my teammates and the Vancouver Giants fans for their support over the years. I’m very excited to return to Vancouver and I’m honoured to be included on the Vancouver Giants Wall of Honour.”
“We are very excited to have Craig Cunningham take his rightful place on the Vancouver Giants Wall of Honour,” said Giants Majority Owner, President and Governor, Ron Toigo. “Craig’s hockey and life journey has inspired many, and the Vancouver Giants forever grateful for Craig’s dedication, perseverance, leadership and character that he demonstrated daily both on and off the ice.”
Toigo adds, “I don’t think it’s a coincidence that during Craig’s tenure with the Giants, we won the Memorial Cup, four B.C. Division titles and played some of our most exciting hockey ever.”
