The Regina Pats are very grateful to the Regina Community and their fans for the wonderful support they give us. We would like to show our appreciation to the community by getting involved in special events and appearances throughout the City of Regina. Throughout the 2013-14 Regular Season the Pats spent over 260 hours in the community including visits to local hospitals and care centres, Regina area schools and other events in the city.
The Pats and Western Pizza team up yearly for Have-a-Heart Night to raise money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Players make pizza deliveries in the community, with the money from delivery fees and tips going to the H&S Foundation. To date, this program has raised nearly 50 thousand dollars.
The Teddy Bear Toss has become a staple of the Western Hockey League in recent years with almost every team in the league participating with a form of toy/clothing drive. After collecting the toys at the game with some help from local minor hockey teams; the team heads out to local hospitals and care centres to delivery the toys to children in need of some Christmas cheer.
The Regina Pats and their video provider, Adjile.ca came together to make one initiation team’s practice an unforgettable evening. This is just one way the Pats get involved with the minor hockey community.
What’s listed are just a few examples of how the Pats are involved in the community. If you would like the Regina Pats to be attend your Community Event, please contact Gord Pritchard.
