Valley First Presents: Penticton Vees vs Merritt Centennials

Date: February 8, 2013 (7:00 PM - 9:45 PM)

The Penticton Vees in partnership with Valley First are hosting the annual Hogs versus Hosers Charity Fundraising Night on Friday, February 8 at the South Okanagan Events Centre. While the Vees tackle the Centennials, fans are encouraged to tackle hunger in the Okanagan Valley. The puck drops at 7:00 PM.

Fans who bring a non-perishable food donation, for Feed the Valley, will receive discounted tickets. Adults and seniors will be offered $10 tickets and children and student tickets are only $2. The giving gets better. The Penticton Vees will donate $1 from each adult and senior ticket purchased directly to School District 67's Breakfast Program. The BC Hockey Hall of Fame Society has also stepped up to the plate and will be donating proceeds from the night's 50/50 draw to the Breakfast Program.

During the intermissions, see another infamous Penticton rivalry continue. Watch as Penticton's very own RCMP and firefighters duke it out for bragging rights by competing in their own 20-minute hockey game! Like the RCMP and firefighters, local schools have also been invited to compete. Participating schools have the opportunity to win an additional $1500.00, courtesy of Underwriter's Insurance.

  • $500.00 to the school that has the highest game attendance
  • $500.00 to the school that is the loudest at the game
  • $500.00 to the school that has the most signs at the game

The Penticton Vees are challenging everyone in the South Okanagan to get involved. By attending the Hogs versus Hosers game, you will be supporting local food banks and the SD67 Breakfast Program. So, let's fill this house and Feed the Valley.

Donation bins are now set up at the Valley First Box Office (at the SOEC). Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance for this game.
