For just $5, ticket holders will gain access to special in-store events and can enter-to-win a $5000 shopping spree. Proceeds from ticket sales will help fund Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada’s new national initiative: the HBC Summer Brain Gain program, which helps school-age children and youth begin the school year with knowledge and confidence and aims to prevent learning loss and narrow the achievement gap between advantaged and disadvantaged students.

“Helping young Canadians boost their academic potential and achieve success is an immensely important cause that we are proud to support,” said Liz Rodbell, President, Hudson’s Bay. “Last Giving Day, $170,000 was donated to Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, and we are thrilled to continue our partnership and the ongoing development of this program.”

“This program will offer fun, summertime opportunities that motivate young people to learn through discovery and creative expression and help make their summer vacation a season of continued learning and development,” said Owen Charters, president & CEO, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. “We are excited to be creating great futures for Boys and Girls Club members through our partnership with Hudson’s Bay Company.”
