In an exclusive interview with the Neepawa Press this past weekend, Shane Hnidy, 2011 Stanley Cup champion with the Boston Bruins, confirmed that he will be unveiling the coveted Cup in Neepawa on Thursday, August 18 at the Yellowhead Centre, where the Yellowhead will be hosting a Stanley Cup social.
The Cup will initially be arriving in Winnipeg during the afternoon of the same day, and then be transported to Neepawa; and, although the exact time of the trophy's arrival is unknown, it is sure to raise the roof with celebration when it makes its way through the doors of the Yellowhead Centre.
With the cost of tickets set at $15, the Stanley Cup social on the evening of August 18 is scheduled to take place from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.(no no minors will be allowed), and will feature entertainment from Music Man.
Also, although precise times have yet to be announced, residents will have the opportunity to have their photos taken with Shane Hnidy and the Stanley Cup on the morning of August 19, likely between 9 a.m. and noon.
Tickets and information can be obtained by contacting Ed or Diane Hindy at 476-2288. All proceeds from the Stanley Cup Social will be donated to the Yellowhead Centre.
Exclusive details pertaining to this event will be updated as they become available and can be viewed on the Neepawa Press website at
