FortisBC hands over the loot

Two years into their three year commitment as sponsors of Princeton’s Junior B hockey team, Fortis is enthusiastic about their continued support and the Posse. “John Babiak (the Posse executive president) and Coach Dale Hladun of the Posse have really been working hard to put together a successful season,” said Fortis spokeperson Judit Horvath.

Two years into their three year commitment as sponsors of Princeton’s Junior B hockey team, Fortis is enthusiastic about their continued support and the Posse.  “John Babiak (the Posse executive president) and Coach Dale Hladun of the Posse have really been working hard to put together a successful season,” said  Fortis spokeperson Judit Horvath.  “We know hockey is important to the community and we are very proud to be a sponsor.”

Coach Hladun (Duner) stated, “We are really looking forward to our 10 year anniversary season.  There is going to be some exciting hockey and we can’t wait for the season to start.  Fortis has been a great sponsor.  They will be sponsoring two home games this year and we look forward to those games.”

Fortis has already been sponsoring the Posse for three years, but after one year of sponsorship decided to do more.  “Fortis signed a three year sponsorship with the Posse last year,” explained Horvath.  “It has been a pleasure for us to turn over the $5000 each year and keep tabs on our team as they progress throughout the year.”

Babiak said, “It is companies like Fortis that really make a difference for team’s like the Princeton Posse.  We really appreciate their financial support and are looking forward to another strong year on the ice.”

“Hockey is a good game,” continued Coach Duner.  “It is fun to play and exciting to watch.  It’s a good family evening out and we hope to see lots of locals up in the stands cheering on their team this coming season.”
