First Annual Kelly-Anne Drummond Cup

Those of you in Montreal might be interested in attending this event honoring Kelly-Anne.

1st Annual Kelly-Anne Drummond Cup - Concordia vs McGill

Kelly-Anne Drummond, an ex-Stinger, was murdered one year ago this October fifth. Kelly-Anne was a member of the Concordia Women’s Rugby team from 1999-2001. She was very well-like and respected for her fun-loving attitude, commitment to the game and her work ethic. She left behind many relatives, friends and teammates from her playing days at Concordia and with the Montreal Barbarian rugby club.

We, at Concordia, have permanently retired her number three jersey and on Wednesday the 12th of October the 2005 Stingers Women’s Rugby Team will be playing against their cross city rivals, the McGill Martlets for the 1st Annual Kelly-Anne Drummond Cup. Kick off is at 7pm and we will be collecting money on her behalf for the West Island Women’s Shelter.

Come out and support women’s rugby and the fight against domestic violence.

When: Wednesday, October 12th, 2005
Kick off is at 7pm in NDG, Loyola Campus.

Please come and support a good cause.

Joanne Auger MIRFC Member and Ex-teammate of Kelly-Anne's

Hi Rachel,
It was such a bittersweet evening. You would be happy to know that McGill won the cup. It was beautiful... a crystal vase mounted on a pedestal base.It was nice seeing her old Rubgy friends there ....but sad to see that Kell was not present with them, but I know she was there in spirit. There was a minute of silence prior to the start of the game in rememberance of Kelly-Anne.It was an honor for us to be on the field presenting the Kelly-Anne Drummond Cup.
