It has been announced that 2019 O’Brien Award nominee Bob McClure will soon be rubbing shoulders with some of Toronto’s more notable sporting personalities.

Fresh off a career-best season, driver McClure will be attending the 18th annual Milton Sports Celebrity Dinner and Auction, which will be taking place on Tuesday, February 4 at RattleSnake Point Golf Club.

McClure, who is a finalist for driver of the year at the upcoming O’Brien Awards, will join sports celebrities Eric Lindros, Alvin Williams, Jack Armstrong, Tessa Bonhomme and Tyler McGregor at the event.

McClure posted the highest earnings of his career in 2019, a season in which he drove the winners of $5.9 million. He reached the top of the sport in August when he steered Forbidden Trade to an upset victory in the $1 million Hambletonian.

The Sports Celebrity Dinner and Auction is presented by the Milton Chamber of Commerce and proceeds go towards the Chamber Scholarship Program, which funds local students in their post-secondary education.

The evening’s program includes an autograph session with the celebrities, a cocktail reception, gourmet meal, silent and live auction. Auction items include golf packages, spa packages and exclusive sports memorabilia.

The finale of the evening will be an opportunity to hear stories and learn more from the sports celebrities, as they join master of ceremonies Ken Reid of Rogers Sportsnet on stage.

Woodbine Entertainment is a member of the Milton Chamber of Commerce and proud sponsor of the event.

Tickets for the event can be purchased by visiting the official event page (here).
