This past October, George Stroumboulopoulos, host of CBC’s , was challenged by his viewers to do a dare as part of the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s A Dare To Remember fundraising campaign.
George’s fans suggested that he wear a colour other than black, wear a Maple Leafs shirt on air, or even pairs skate with Kurt Browning. So he combined these ideas and did all three: he took figure skating lessons from Kurt Browning while wearing a Leafs’ shirt! Watch Episode 28 of the current season of The Hour to see George and Kurt in action.
George signed the shirt and asked his friends on CBC’s Battle of the Blades to do the same. Now you could own this shirt, signed by Kurt Browning, Ron MacLean, Jamie Salé, Barbara Underhill, Shae-Lynn Bourne, Marie-France Dubreuil, Christine Hough-Sweeney (“Tuffy”) and others! It would make a a great gift for yourself, or the Strombo fan, Leafs fan, hockey fan or figure-skating fan in your life.
You’ve got 10 days to bid on George’s autographed jersey on Ebay: http://bit.ly/89reHY. All proceeds will go to supporting grassroots HIV/AIDS organizations through the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Let the bidding war begin!
