Michael “Pinball” Clemons heading to Olds

Olds College Gala

CFL legend Michael “Pinball” Clemons will be the keynote speaker at Olds College Gala on March 24.

Considered one of the best athletes Canada has ever known, Clemons led a spectacular CFL career, obliterating records, and winning Grey Cups with the Toronto Argonauts as both a player and their head coach.

He has inspired people both on and off the field as an icon of sporting excellence, community leadership and personal integrity.

The black tie affair at the Ralph Klein Centre will also feature entertainment by Cow Town Opera, a live art battle, a fashion show with designs from The Fashion Institute by Olds College, a live and silent auction, and the naming of our 2017 Partner of the Year.

Tickets are $250 each and on sale now. To purchase tickets, visit oldscollege.ca/gala or contact Anne Woods at awoods@oldscollege.ca or call 403-556-8210.

Olds College first opened its doors in 1913, and now includes programming that covers Animal Sciences, Horticulture, Land & Water, Fashion, Business, Hospitality & Tourism, and Trades & Apprenticeships.
