TORONTO, May 18 /CNW/ - The votes are in and the quest for the Stanley Cup® has finally come to an end - Kevin McNamara from North Gower, Ontario has been crowned the grand prize winner of the Bring Home a Stanley Cup Champion contest! After two weeks of intense campaigning, he will finally celebrate when the Ultimate Playoffs Party takes place at his home with Doug Gilmour and the Stanley Cup® itself.
Each regional finalist was tasked to produce an inspiring and creative online video that explained why they deserved the votes of Canadians to Bring Home a Stanley Cup Champion and the Stanley Cup®. Over the course of two weeks, Kevin collected an impressive number of votes to secure his win.
The grand prize celebratory party will also be filmed and featured on TSN. The second and third place at-home Playoffs Parties will take place towards the end of May and in June.
