WINNIPEG Jets head coach Claude Noel will be the special guest at the annual fundraising dinner for the University of Manitoba Bisons men's and women's hockey programs next Monday.

Proceeds from the evening will go to support student athletic scholarships and general program needs of the Bison women's and men's hockey programs.

As the special guest, Noel will participate in a short question-and-answer session after dinner.

Tickets ($150 each, corporate tables $1,200) are available at www.gobisons.ca.

"We continue to build on this annual fundraising event and appreciate the support of the Winnipeg Jets organization as last year Kevin Cheveldayoff (Jets executive vice-president and general manager) attended and we're more than pleased that Claude Noel could be able to make time in a tremendously fast-paced Jets schedule to be special guest this year," Bisons women's hockey head coach Jon Rempel said in a statement. "This will be another fantastic evening and chance for people to assist both Bison hockey programs."
