Women on Top of the World

Women on Top of the World

On April 1, 2020, the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame will present an event featuring many of Canada’s top female athletes of all time. Titled “Women on Top of the World,” the event will help kick off the IIHF Women’s World Hockey Championship taking place in Halifax and Truro.

At a dinner gala taking place at the Halifax Convention Centre, co-hosts Bruce Rainnie and Karen Furneaux will talk with some of the country’s most influential, inspiring and iconic women.

The head table will feature Olympians, World Champions and many women who have achieved “firsts” in international sports. Guests scheduled to appear include: Canada’s top female curler Jennifer Jones, basketball trailblazer Chantal Vallee, curling record-setter Colleen Jones, Canada’s most accomplished female gymnast Ellie Black, speed skating legend Catriona Le May Doan, Canadian hockey icon Hayley Wickenheiser, ice dance champion Tessa Virtue, and WNBA all-star and Canadian Olympian Kia Nurse.

Joining this stellar line-up of women in sport will be local business woman and Events East CEO Carrie Cussons, along with a special performance by acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Reeny Smith. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements to come!

Tickets are on sale now. Tickets are $225 for adults and $100 for youth (plus applicable fees). To purchase individual seats or tables, go to ticketatlantic.com.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the development of a major female athlete exhibit at the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame.

The Women on Top of the World event will follow a Women’s Summit event hosted by Events East on March 31, 2020 (more details to follow).
