Hamilton Bulldogs Foundation Comes out a Winner in FirstOntario/WFCU OHL Wager
Friendly wager scores $1,000 for Bulldogs Foundation
The OHL finals couldn’t have been more intense. It went down to the wire to decide the winner of the championship series between the Windsor Spitfires and the Hamilton Bulldogs. It wasn’t until game seven in Hamilton – in front of an OHL record-setting crowd of more than 12,000 fans cheering on Hamilton with plenty of fans who made the trip from Windsor to scream for their team – that the Bulldogs came through for the win and a ticket to the Memorial Cup.
FirstOntario Credit Union CEO Lloyd Smith and WFCU Credit Union CEO Eddie Francis had already decided to support their city’s teams. The one who lost the wager would proudly wear the opponent’s jersey while donating $1,000 to the winning CEO’s charity of choice.
Soon after the win, all in good fun to rally some support for community services, WFCU Credit Union’s CEO graciously put on a Hamilton Bulldogs jersey and wrote a cheque to the Hamilton Bulldog’s Foundation.
Both CEOs would like to congratulate the Windsor Spitfires and the Hamilton Bulldogs on a remarkable series and a great season – congratulations all around!
