The Drayton Valley Thunder have kicked off their 2015 portion of the current season, and with that comes the team’s annual Charity Home Game.
A popular match for local residents, regardless of which team they face on the ice, the charity game is an important part of the Thunder organization’s calendar as it allows them to reach out to a community they call home.
“We’ve done Heart and Stroke in the past, we’ve done Movember, this year we’re just trying to keep it a little bit more local,” shares Erin Hepper, director of sales, marketing, and community relations for the Thunder. “CT4DV has been raising money, so if we can help them out that’s definitely staying in the community and that way we’re giving back to a community that does so much for us.”
“This way we can give back a little bit,” she adds.
Running in much the same format as it has in previous years, the night will give Thunder fans a unique opportunity to bid on and win one of a kind donated jerseys that are worn by the team during the game.
