TORONTO, Ont. – The Canadian Women’s Hockey League in association with Canadian jewellery company Hillberg & Berk is proud to announce a two-year partnership. Hillberg & Berk’s partnership will empower CWHL Live broadcasts across the 2016/17 season and into the future, helping connect the league with its wider community of fans.

The partnership also sees the addition of Hillberg & Berk’s Sparkle Ball earrings to the CWHL merchandise range. These earrings are now available at the CWHL's Online Store and at CWHL events shortly, with each team having their very own Sparkle Ball colour for fans to buy and wear proudly. A portion of proceeds from each pair of CWHL Sparkle Balls sold will go to the CWHL to help the league empower our hockey heroines.

"We are honoured to be the newest partner of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League,” said Rachel Mielke, founder and CEO of Hillberg & Berk. “The women who play in the league are inspiring to us and we are proud to support them. We can't wait to see where this partnership goes in the future and are excited to be a part of helping this league grow."
To celebrate the partnership, Hillberg & Berk recently gifted all 125 CWHL players and team staff with their very own CWHL Sparkle Balls, as well as an additional pair to pass to inspiring women they encounter in their day to day lives as a #RandomActOfSparkle this festive season.

“We are thrilled to have such a growing company as Hillberg & Berk, who share our passion for empowering and celebrating women, become part of the CWHL family,” said CWHL Commissioner Brenda Andress. “Their support will enable us to continue bringing the world’s best female athletes to the hockey community via CWHL Live each week.”
