Royals’ intra-squad game kicks out $7,000 in fundraising

Westshore Rebels score 50-50 returns at Royals' game

From one amateur club to another, the Victoria Royals hockey team can now say they have an invested interest in the Westshore Rebels junior football season.

During the Royals’ Aug. 31 intra-squad game, members of the Rebels sold 50-50 tickets to the tune of $550 dollars. Hopefully it puts a spring in the Rebels step as they face the biggest task of the season, the undefeated Vancouver Island Raiders in Nanaimo on Saturday (Sept. 10).

As admission to the Royals’ intra-squad game was by donation, the team was able to donate $6,500, including proceeds from the chuck-a-puck, to Free The Children, the world’s largest network of children helping children through education.

There are currently more than one million youth involved in innovative education and development programs in 45 countries.

The Royals continue the WHL exhibition schedule against the Vancouver Giants Friday night in Ladner and Saturday in Maple Ridge.

The lone pre-season game in Victoria is Friday, Sept. 16, against the visiting Kelowna Rockets at 7:05 p.m. at the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre.
