The Broken Arrow Youth Ranch has announced southeast Saskatchewan hockey product Todd Holt will be the guest speaker at their upcoming fundraising breakfast on April 9 in Estevan.

Broken Arrow, which is headed up by former Estevan resident Todd Moroz and his wife Lara, is a ministry that helps families.

Parents who are finding it difficult to properly care for their children because the parents are battling personal issues such as addictions, abuse, family illness and unhealthy relationships, have their children stay at Broken Arrow, a real ranch, for at least a year.

The goal is to eventually reunite children with their families.

The Broken Arrow Classic Breakfast fundraiser, which will be on April 9 at 8 a.m. at the Estevan Leisure Centre’s multipurpose room.

Holt was born in Estevan and raised in Alameda. He played minor hockey locally with the peewee AA Bruins and the bantam AA Bruins, winning league and provincial titles.  Holt spent several years with the Western Hockey League’s Swift Current Broncos, where he remains the club’s all-time leading scorer, and had a fruitful career in professional hockey in several leagues. In 2012, Holt revealed he was among the players sexually abused by former junior hockey coach Graham James. Holt has become an advocate for trauma victims and abuse prevention. “Todd’s story is one of hope and overcoming which aligns with Broken Arrow’s mission and purpose,” Broken Arrow stated in a media release. “This is a story we hope you will come to hear.”

There will be more than 20 items available in an auction at the breakfast, including children’s toys, artwork, hotel and restaurant gift certificates, jewelry, tools and more. Broken Arrow will also be drawing the winners for raffle prizes, including a Winnipeg Jets ticket package for four, and Edmonton Oilers package for two and a romance package in Estevan. For tickets please call Todd Moroz at 306-640-8607 or Lara Moroz at 306-640-8603.
