Celebrating High School Athletes
B’nai Brith Hamilton Sports Celebrity Dinner
The B’nai Brith Hamilton Sports Celebrity Dinner, presented by Investors Group, is Hamilton’s most anticipated annual charitable fundraising event. For 65 years, they have been bringing the best in sports entertainment to Hamilton, and raised over $2 million for local charities.
On Monday, February 1, in conjunction with the Hamilton Spectator, B’nai Brith honoured the 2014-2015 Male and Female Athletes-of-the-Year from Hamilton area high schools. The event drew a packed crowd of around 1000 at the Hamilton Convention Centre. Some of the luminaries included Olympic gold medalist Donovan Bailey, Toronto Blue Jays’ Dalton Pompey and former NHLer Jeff O’Neill.
The 2014-2015 Hamilton District Christian High Athletes of the year were Aaron DeJong, Josh Huisman and Jessica Heidbuurt. They attended the dinner and were honoured for their leadership in sport as well as their natural athletic ability and skill. Congratulations Knights!
