Free food, fun at MFRC Hockey fundraiser
In a show of support for military families and the defence community, Babcock Canada has united with the Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre for a special fundraising hockey game.
On Sept. 4, 1 p.m., Babcock employees will face off against the CFB Esquimalt Senior Tritons at the Wurtele arena in a battle for the inaugural Victoria Class Cup.
To fill the stands with spectators, the MFRC will serve up free hot dogs, pizza, and pop 45 minutes before the puck drop. Special commemorative items will be handed out prior to the game, and there will be a chance to win a door prize.
“I am honoured to be working with the people at Babcock to create an exciting annual hockey game that supports our military community,” said Lisa Church, MFRC Community Engagement manager.
Spectators should bring cash for the 50-50 draw and Chuck A Puck contest, with proceeds going to the MFRC.
“We’re delighted to partner with the MFRC for this year’s Victoria Class Cup and thrilled to have become such an integral part of this navy community,” said Jake Jacobson, Vice President of Communications and Government Relations.
Hockey mascots Marty the Marmot of the Victoria Royals (WHL) and Victoria Grizzlies’ Grizz (BCHL) will be attending the game, as will senior military leadership.
