Toronto Marlies, Cheered on by 6,000+ TDSB Students, Help Support Children Across Toronto

TORONTO, 4 February 2015 When the Toronto Marlies take to the ice on Wednesday, February 4th, they will be battling more than just the Grand Rapids Griffins – they will be assisting in the fight against child poverty as well. The February 4 contest features a special 11:00 a.m. start time to allow participation from the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) who will be sending over 6,000 enthusiastic young fans from 70 different schools to the game. TDSB/TFSS 6th annual Day at the Marlies, a joint effort between the Toronto Foundation for Student Success (TFSS) and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, will raise almost $20,000 in support of student programs at Toronto schools in need.

In addition to creating one of the more boisterous cheering sections at any Toronto venue, TDSB students will participate in pre-game ceremonies and students from Beverley Heights Middle School will perform the national anthems.

TDSB/TFSS Day at the Marlies is just one of many initiatives of the TFSS, the independent charity of the TDSB.
