MONTREAL - Carey and Angela Price will be hosting the fifth annual Shooting for the Stars event on Friday night in Kelowna, BC to benefit the Breakfast Club of Canada, which strives to ensure that as many children as possible have access to a healthy breakfast before school.
The Prices, who reside in Kelowna over the summer, have been ambassadors for First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) communities on behalf of the organization since August 2014.
Over the past four years, the event has raised $500,000 for new and existing Club programs.
Currently, the Club supports 19 breakfast programs in the Thompson Okanagan region of BC, feeding 4,843 students daily during the school year.
Nationally, the Club operates 1,650 school programs across the country, serving an estimated 220,426 meals to students every school day.
Back in January, the Canadiens' netminder once again played host to a group of youngsters in Montreal who frequent breakfast clubs at schools in either Anahim Lake, Williams Lake or Quesnel - rural communities in BC where Price grew up - as part of the Shooting for the Stars program.
Winners are chosen annually on the basis of displaying a positive attitude, good behavior, and their overall involvement at school.
Special guests for Friday night's festivities include defenseman Jeff Petry and his wife, Julie, who have been enjoying some downtime in the area since mid-week.
The trip out to Western Canada reunited the couple's eldest son, Boyd, with his good friend, Liv Price.
Two-year-old Liv has been giving Boyd - who will celebrate his third birthday in early August - the grand tour of Kelowna over the last couple of days.
They've also been catching up on some movie watching and relaxing. Talk about adorable…
