“Y” Dinner Chairman  Ken Kronson 
                                          s chair of the “Y” Rady Jewish Community Sports Dinner for the past 33 years, I
                                          have been very pleased to see this annual fund raising event grow to become one of
                                          the largest and longest running sports dinners in Western Canada. Over these many
                                  year, the dinner has provided Winnipeg sports fans with an opportunity to meet some of the
                                  best know and top national and international sports personalities, while raising much needed
                                  funds for sports equipment, summer youth camps and senior citizens programs at the
                                  former YMHA on Hargrave Street. The old YMHA has now evolved into the very modern
                                  and very popular Rady Jewish Community Centre on Doncaster Street.
                                  The new centre not only provides great services to the local Jewish community. Since its
                                  inception, the Rady Centre has become a popular place and is used by the entire
                                  community. And that is something we are all very proud of.
                                  At this time I would also like to thank the staff at the Rady Jewish Community Centre, Acting
                                  Executive Director Sue Boreskie and her support staff for their hard work and dedication in
                                  helping bring this annual event together. And to my organizing committee, my sincere
                                  thanks to all of you for your continued support and for the countless hours of dedication and
hard work you provide to ensure that this annual fund raising dinner continues to reach its monetary goal each and every
year. This in turn allows the Rady Centre to continue the many services
and programs it provides to this community. We are very pleased to
have the “winningest” coach in NHL history,                                 Let us create your logo!
    Scotty Bowman, as our guest speaker this year and look forward to
hearing Scotty’s comments on the NHL and his own great coaching
career. I am also pleased that we will be honouring Mark Chipman and
the ownership group of the new MTS Centre later this evening.
    Lead by Mark, the True North ownership group’s hard work and
dedication overcame many obstacles in order to provide our community
with a much needed new arena and entertainment facility. It has
definitely added a new energy and profile to the downtown core and
rejuvenated and enhanced our city’s image everywhere.
    I wish you all an enjoyable and entertaining evening and thank you
for supporting the dinner and its objectives and goals again this year. ♦

                                lmost everybody knows at least one person who works extremely hard to make the
                                most of life, even though destiny has thrown them many challenges. These incredible

 Special Guest  Don Wittman
                                              ver the course of his distinguished 40-plus year career, Don Wittman has
                                              covered just about every sport.
                                              A resident of Winnipeg since 1961, Wittman is a two-time ACTRA award
                                      Winner and has been inducted into the Canadian Football League's Hall of Fame,
                                      as well as Manitoba's provincial Hall of Fame.
                                         It seems that every event he covers enjoys great success, including CFL on
                                      CBC, championship curling since 1961, Canadian Open Golf (1961-1988) and
                                      CBC's Hoc key Night in Canada beginning in 1979.
                                         Wittman has also covered Athletics, Baseball, Basketball and the IAAF World
                                      Track & Field Championships.
                                         For decades, Wittman has been the curling voice of CBC covering the Olympic
                                      Games, Brier, Tournament of Hearts, World Championships and numerous other
                                      tournaments. A veteran of Olympic broadcasts, the 1964 Winter Games in
                                      Innsbruck were Wittman's first.
                                         At the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta, he called the most-watched races of the
                                      Olympics - Donovan Bailey's 9.84 seconds record-breaking 100m and the
Canadian men's 4 x 100m relay - both gold medal winners.
    Wittman was born in Herbert, Saskatchewan, and attended the University of Saskatchewan. He began his
broadcasting career as a radio news reporter in 1955 at CFCQ in Saskatoon. He worked for CJNB in North Battleford,
Saskatchewan, before returning to Saskatoon and CFCQ.
  Wittman and his wife Judy have two daughters, Karen and Kristen, and a son, David. ♦

     The Mandate for Maccabi Manitoba:
     The Mandate for Maccabi Manitoba:
     Maccabi Manitoba is the name of a volunteer Committee that has been formed to assist athletes from Winnipeg (and the
     balance of the Province) to qualify through a process of tryouts that have been held in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and
     Winnipeg for the Maccabi Canada Team and to assist in the fund raising for those who qualify. We are very fortunate to
     have 11 athletes selected to date. This will be the largest group of Winnipeg (and Manitoba) athletes who will become part
     of our Canadian contingent to the 17 th Maccabiah Games in Israel from July 11-21, 2005.

     Mission Statement for Maccabi Canada:
     Mission Statement for Maccabi Canada:
     Maccabi Canada is a national, non-profit volunteer organization that utilizes sport s as a medium for Jewish identity and for
     strengthening our eternal bond with the State of Israel. The World Maccabi Movement has become one of the largest
     single groups to visit Israel on a regular basis over the past several years. Our commitment to Israel has become that
     much more important at this time of conflict and decreased tourism. Our mission is the promotion of Jewish identity and
     traditions through athletic, cultural, social and educational activities for both youth and adults alike, both domestically and

     The Maccabi Canada Role is:
     The Maccabi Canada Role is:
     To select and prepare a National Team to compete at the Maccabiah Games which are held every four years in Israel; and
     to select and prepare a National Team to compete at the Pan-American Maccabi Games.

     To support the JCC's and "Y"s in promoting and preparing for the North American JCC Maccabi Games which are now
     held every year in various North American cities. This summer, Winnipeg JCC will be sending a team for the fourth time to
     these games. This year the JCC Team will go to St. Paul, Minnesota in August.

     To help identify and cultivate young Jewish athletes from all over Canada; To run programs which educate our young
     about sport, Jewish culture, and Israel. The main goal of Maccabi Canada is to bring as many young Jews as possible to
     Israel so that we can expose them to their religion, their traditions, and most of all, give them an "Israel Experience!"

     It is anticipated that approximately 6000 athletes will be participating in the 17 th World Maccabiah Games. Canada is itself
     hoping to send the largest team ever, over 300 athletes.

     Maccabi Canada is also sending over one hundred 14-18 year olds, who will be joining some 1300 athletes in this same
     age range from more than 50 other countries. This is new for the 2005 Games and is meant to form the core of the
     athletes that compete in 2009. In addition to their participation in high level athletic competition, these junior athletes will
     be engaging in a very meaningful Israel experience in the three days after the Games have officially ended.

     It costs $6,000.00 to send just one athlete to Israel for the Games. For many deserving athletes, raising these funds is
     onerous. As the number of eligible athletes continues to increase and enlarge our Manitoba team, it becomes that much
     more important that our Committee try to do whatever we can to assist all athletes financially with a specific focus on
     underwriting those whom are unable to fund themselves.

     It is the goal of Maccabiah Canada and Maccabi Manitoba to make sure that NO worthy athlete stays home due to
     financial need. We are therefore asking you to assi st us at this crucial time. Please help us to help our local athletes by
     placing a bid on our silent auction items at tonight’s dinner. Visit our athletes table if you would like further information on
     our fundraiser ice cream sale, or if you would be interested in making a donation to our organization.
