Hockey has been a big part of our brand’s heritage, and we are particularly proud of our history of supporting women’s hockey. Today, we reinforce our commitment to the sport and female athletes, announcing our sponsorship of the Professional Women’s Hockey Players Association (PWHPA) “Dream Gap Tour,” a multi-city tour showcasing North America’s top female hockey players.
Our partnership takes center stage and center ice on October 5 as the PWHPA “Dream Gap Tour” comes to Hudson, NH. The “Dunkin’ Women’s Hockey Showcase” will be a four-team exhibition tournament over two days, with four games showcasing the world’s best players. The lineup includes 20 Olympians representing two countries, including Kendall Coyne Schofield, Hilary Knight, Lee Stecklein, Marie-Philip Poulin, Kali Flanagan, Mélodie Daoust, Monique Lamoureux-Morando and Jocelyn Lamoureux-Davidson, among others.
Dunkin’ will present the Dunkin’ Player of the Game after every matchup and the Dunkin’ MVP award at every championship game during the multi-city U.S. tour. Watch out for in-store appearances by PWHPA stars at select Dunkin’ locations during the tour.
Have a little hockey star? On Friday, October 4, the PWHPA with Dunkin’ and Bauer Hockey will host a youth hockey skills clinic at Hudson’s Cyclones Arena. As part of the clinic, young players (ages 6 – 16) will have a chance to skate with the pros and learn essential skills from this decorated group of female hockey players.
We are thrilled to partner with the PWHPA and support this empowering organization and the sport of women’s hockey. To learn more about PWHPA and the Dream Gap tour visit www.pwhpa.com
