CFL Commissioner Tom Wright to speak at 4th Annual Friends of Golden Hawk Football Reception and Dinner
[WATERLOO,ON] – Laurier Golden Hawk Athletics and the 5th Quarter Club would like to announce that the 4th Annual “Friends of Golden Hawk Football Reception and Dinner” will take place on Thursday May 8th, 2003 at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel in Kitchener, Ontario. CFL Commissioner, Tom Wright will speak to a SOLD OUT crowd at the fourth annual event.

“Having secured a top-rated speaker again this year, along with the continued support of Laurier Football has helped to make this a popular event”, explained PETER BAXTER, Director of Athletics at Wilfrid Laurier University.

Having just recently joined the Canadian Football League, Tom Wright has spent more than 20 years in the sports marketing business, most recently as President and CEO of adidas-Salomon North America. Joining the CFL in November, 2002, Wright is the 11th Commissioner and his involvement in events like this hope to contribute support toward the development of football at both the amateur and professional levels in Canada.

The 5th Quarter Club is operated under the umbrella of the Golden Hawk Club, the fundraising organization for Athletics at Wilfrid Laurier University. The goal of the 5th Quarter Club is to raise funds for the football program and to cultivate friendships surrounding the great tradition and success of one of the top programs in Canada. Golden Hawk Football has enjoyed excellent support in the past and the proceeds from this event have helped to enhance the program over the past three seasons. Over the brief lifespan of this great event, it has now raised in excess of $75,000 for the Laurier Football program.
