Joe Bowen in town for Sports Hall of Fame Dinner
2018-05-24
by Randy Pascal

In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Greater Sudbury Sports Hall of Fame Celebrity Dinner and Awards celebration, event organizers have arranged for a special treat.

Legendary NHL broadcaster Joe Bowen, the long-time announcer of Toronto Maple Leafs' games and one time radio announcer for the Sudbury Wolves, will be on hand, in Sudbury, on June 13th (2018), sharing the master of ceremony duties with Gary Beech.

The voice of the Leafs for more than 3,000 games, the graduate of Sudbury High School was inducted into the Greater Sudbury Sports Hall of Fame in 1999. Working alongside CKSO morning man Michael Cranston in his early years, Bowen would leave Northern Ontario for the Maritimes, providing the play by play for the Nova Scotia Voyageurs before catching on with the Leafs.

Both he and his legendary catch phrase, "Holy Mackinaw!", have become part of Toronto Maple Leafs lore. The scope of his involvement was noted back on March 7th (2017), when Bowen marked his 3000th Toronto game call, a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Tickets for the Sports Celebrity Dinner are currently on sale at the House of Kin (705-522-3600), or by calling Chris Sheridan at (705) 522-9682. Tickets are being sold for $60/person, with children age 12 and under admitted for $25/person.
