LAC LA BICHE, April 26, 2016 – With more than 250 people in attendance, Portage College’s 2016 Sports and Education Dinner was a huge success, raising over $35,000 for scholarships and awards.
The evening featured former Edmonton Oiler, four-time Stanley Cup champion and three-time Norris Trophy winner, Paul Coffey, who shared his experiences in the NHL and answered questions from the blue and orange crowd.
