Thanks to all of our Corporate, Non-Profit and Individual Members who renewed their 2014 Membership with CUSBA in our POWER PLAY FOR MEMBERSHIP contest.

Our two CUSBA MEMBER winners were the Detroit Regional Chamber and the Odette School of Business at University of Windsor. Representatives from both organizations enjoyed sixth row upper bowl seats for the Detroit Red Wings – Toronto Maple Leafs game on Tuesday, March 18 at the Joe Louis Auditorium.

It was an exciting match with the Detroit Red Wings wining 3 to 2 for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Gustav Nyquist had two goals and Jimmy Howard made 31 saves to help the Detroit Red Wings hold on to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs.Jake Gardiner scored on a power play midway through the third period to pull Toronto within a goal.The Maple Leafs appeared to tie the game less than two minutes later, but Nazem Kardri’s goal was waved off because he made a kicking motion to knock the puck in with the inside of his right skate.The Red Wings seemed to seal the win with 2:33 left when Daniel Alfredsson’s wrist shot from the slot hit the back of the net. Toronto, though, pulled its goaltender to add an extra skater seconds later and James van Riemsdyk scored with 1:13 left.

• The Tickets for this special drawing were generously donated by CUSBA Board member Kevin Johns, a partner at the accounting firm Clayton & McKervey in Southfield.

Our POWER PLAY FOR MEMBERSHIP was developed to Encourage companies and organizations doing business on either or both sides of the border to join CUSBA.
