Finland 100 Gala program included speeches, recognitions - scholarships, three course dinner, raffle and silent auction and live Finnish music performances.

To celebrate all the Finnish hockey players, we had an ice hockey themed auction in the Gala. Here are some of the items that will be auctioned on the Gala night: 

* Jere Lehtinen’s autographed Stars Jersey and tickets to Jere’s Retirement Ceremony Night that took place on November 24th, 2017.
* The framed Teemu Selänne’s autographed photo from his game as Anaheim Duck. 
* “Leijonat” hat (‘lippis’) autographed by no other than Saku Koivu, Jere Lehtinen and Ville Peltonen – the infamous Tupu, Hupu and Lupu line that took Finland to the top of the world in 1995.
