SASKATOON, SK, July 30, 2018 /CNW/ – On August 15, 2018 Humboldt Broncos Memorial Fund Inc. (HBMFI) will apply to the Court of Queen’s Bench for Saskatchewan in court action QB No. 1038 of 2018, at the Court House, 520 Spadina Crescent East, Saskatoon for an Initial Order allowing it to create an advisory committee and begin distributing funds donated to the GoFundMe campaign.
Following April’s tragic bus accident involving the Humboldt Broncos Junior Hockey Team, HBMFI, a non-profit corporation, was established to help allocate funds donated through the crowdsourcing platform.
Under Saskatchewan’s Informal Public Appeals Act, HBMFI has applied to the court for an order providing for the court-supervised administration and allocation of the funds. HBMFI now seeks further authorization to establish an advisory committee that will prepare a report to HBMFI’s board of directors, recommending a method to allocate the donated funds.
HBMFI is also asking the court to authorize an interim distribution of 10 per cent of the funds donated and seeking other items of relief from the Court.
