Last chance to buy tickets for the 2010 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Gala, presented by BMO Financial Group, to be held on Sunday, November 7, 2010, at the Liberty Grand in Toronto, ON.

The Hall of Fame Gala has quickly grown into an annual favourite and has been a sell-out in each of its first four years. Friends and associates will be on hand to present the distinct Hall of Fame awards, making for a very special evening recalling the sport’s greatest memories. Olympic Champion Eric Lamaze will be in attendance to accept the award for Cagney’s induction while Jim Elder, also an Olympic gold medalist, is sure to entertain the audience with his unique brand of story telling when he is inducted.
