The 2015 Grads vs. Dads Hockey Game went to the Dads with a goal scored in the final seconds of what was a great game last Friday night (March 6) at the Midway arena.
The annual event is a major fundraiser for the BCSS grad class each year. The proceeds help them cover costs of their commencement and a dinner.
There was a mini-game at halftime played between the senior novice team and the grads. The grads got smoked, even worse than the one-goal game with their parents.
Also at halftime, the fans participated in an airplane toss and a puck shoot. With door prizes, raffles, a 50/50 and bake sale tables, everyone had the opportunity to go home richer than they had arrived.
The 2015 BCSS grad class is looking for other opportunities to raise funds. There are a few extra speed bumps in the road to their goal this year. For one thing, the class is small, so there are fewer hands on deck to help with the work. Another thing that got in the way of this particular grad class was the fact the school year started two weeks late. So things had to be tweaked and reorganized and many things were pushed back a week or more.
If you know of any fund raising opportunities, the class could use please contact Pamela Storie at 250-449-2224.
