Each of the roster spots on the opposing team have been sold for $1,000 per player. The game will include three 25 minute periods, autographs for youth in attendance and will be followed by a dinner featuring a silent and live auction.
The game, hosted by the Dunbow Recreation Board, will kickoff fundraising for a multi-use sport facility including hockey rink in the MD of Foothills. This includes Heritage Point, Norris Coulee, and will be built beside the Heritage Heights School.
Included in the project are soccer fields, walking trails, ball diamonds, recreational areas and at the heart of this complex, an indoor hockey arena to be built at the Heritage Heights School site.
The new arena will help the school with its facility needs while providing rink opportunities for local residents and their families. In addition, the facility will act as a community centre for the area allowing the Dunbow Recreation Board to provide year round drop-in and programmed activities for people of all ages from the surrounding communities.
Tickets can be purchased at the door for $20 for a family, $10 for adults and $5 for children and seniors.
