The hype has been building up for months and the big game will finally be here on Saturday.
After the success of their first ever game last year, Cold Lake Fire-Rescue and the Cold Lake RCMP will be going toe-to-toe once again on the 22nd in a charity hockey game. All the proceeds from the match will go towards Cold Lake Victim Services, which provides support, information, and referral services to victims of crime and tragedy and their families. The nonprofit organization is mostly run by volunteers with a few staff members as well as an RCMP liaison to keep in touch with them.
Tickets are still available and are 10 dollars for adults (17 and over), 5 for Youth (age 7-16), and Kids 6 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased at City Hall, Cold Lake Fire-Rescue Headquarters, and the Cold Lake RCMP Detachment.
There will be some other things going on as well as the game itself. Registration still open for the “Hardest Shot Competition” taking place during intermission. This competition is a 20 dollar donation to allow for three shots, with prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Pre-registration for the competition is required, and can be done by phoning the Cold Lake RCMP Detachment at 780-594-3302.
If you’re not super big on sports but still want to support a good cause, a local band by the name of Sound Barrier will be providing some entertainment for the evening as well.
The game takes place at the Energy Centre with Warm-up at 6:30 and puck drop at 7.
