The Kinsmen Club of Moose Jaw is preparing to host the 27th annual Sports Celebrity Banquet at the Heritage Inn next month.

With the event taking place February 2nd, tickets can be purchased now for $150 each or corporate tables of 8 for $1200.

Banquet Chair John Bye says they’ve got a star-studded lineup coming to Moose Jaw again this year.

"This year we have Jamie Campbell coming back as our emcee. He's a Sportsnet anchor; this will be his fourth year with us. We have Amber Balcaen, the first female NASCAR driver [from Canada] to win a sanctioned event - she hails from Winnipeg. We have former Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons, and hockey icon Darryl Sittler."

Balcaen won the race in the US during her rookie season in 2016 and is now the president of her own racing company and a co-star on CMT's Racing Wives.

John Gibbons was drafted by the New York Mets in 1980 before finally making the team in 1984. He won the World Series in 1986 and retired as a catcher in 1990. Gibbons first managed the Toronto Blue Jays from 2004 to 2008, then rehired in 2012, he guided the team back to the playoffs in 2015. The first post-season run for the franchise in 22 years. The team announced at the end of last season that the long-time manager would not be returning next season. 

And finally, Sittler played in the NHL from 1970 to 1985 as part of the Maple Leafs, Flyers, and Red Wings. He was the first player from Toronto to reach 100 points in a season. He was elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1989, named to the Canada Walk of Fame, his number has been retired in Toronto, and he has been named one of the top 100 greatest NHL players in 2017. Sittler is most known for scoring the most points in 1 game, where he scored 10 against the Bruins in 1976.

Banquet Chair Bye says the money raised will all go back into the community.

"We have a large number of parks that we support around the city and definitely some community groups, teams and individuals. A few to mention would be the Moose Jaw Speed Skating Club, Moose Jaw Wrestling Club, the Aqua Otters, and our newest edition the Moose Jaw Families for Change Kinsmen Inclusion Centre, just to name a few."
