Kimberly Dynamiter Food Bank night

Come out to tonight's game against Castlegar; support the food bank

The Kimberley Helping Hands Food Bank is in the midst of its final fundraising campaign of the year — the Christmas hamper project.

Each year the Food Bank puts out some 200 holiday hampers with all that’s needed for a Christmas feast as well as gifts for children.

One of the key components of the year-end fundraising for the Food Bank is the annual Food Bank Dynamiters Hockey Game. This will be the ninth rendition of the game.

“So far these games have raised about $20,000 in food over the years,” said the Food Bank’s Malcolm Fruin. “That’s pretty successful.”

Those who attend tonight’s home game against Castlegar are asked to bring a non-perishable food item. In return you will get a draw ticket for a lot of great prizes, generously donated by local merchants.

During the second intermission the annual fall raffle will be drawn. Tickets will be available at the game until draw time. First prize is $1000 furnished by Meadowbrook Greenhouse, seonc prize is box seats for 11 at a Kootenay ICE game, complete with refreshments and third prize is two nights accommodation from Kimberley Lodging Company.

“We’re looking forward to a good crowd as usual,” Fruin said. “Everyone always has quite a bit of fun.”
