Stampeders ask fans to help team ‘Stamp Out Hunger’

The Williams Lake Stampeders are asking their fans to help the Stampeders Stamp Out Hunger at this Friday’s, Dec. 13, game.

The Williams Lake Stampeders are asking their fans to help the Stampeders Stamp Out Hunger at this Friday’s, Dec. 13, game.

“It’s our last home game [of the regular season], and the community’s been really fantastic about supporting the team over the years, so we want to give something back,” said Calvin Dubray, the team’s sponsorship and marketing manager.

The Stampeders are asking everyone who attends Friday night’s game against the Lac La Hache Tomahawks to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to the Salvation Army Food Bank.

In exchange, volunteers will be handing out free programs with multiple chances to win prizes within.

“There will be a ballot inside to win a Stampeders prize pack filled with a lot of Stampeders merchandise,” Dubray said. “There will also be a chance to win a Coy Cup package — tickets for the whole week of the competition.”

The Stampeders prize pack will include a signed team photo, a jersey, sticks and pucks.

Williams Lake, who will host this year’s Coy Cup Senior Men’s ‘AA’ Provincial Hockey Championship as the defending champions, will launch the tournament from March 11-15 at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

Recently, the team held a silent auction and banquet to help fundraise for the tournament.

“The event was well attended and we would like to thank all of our local businesses who contributed and continue to support the Williams Lake Stampeders,” Dubray said.

The Coy Cup Committee, made up of Stampeders volunteers, has been hard at work planning and preparing since the announcement was made Williams Lake had been selected to host the 2014 Coy Cup Championships.

Dubray said volunteers are still needed for the tournament for jobs big and small, and a sign-up sheet will be on the Stampeders’ desk at the arena for the duration of Friday’s game if people would like to register.

Anyone interested can also contact Stampeders volunteers John Margetts at 250-392-2363 or Fred Manchur at 250-398-7012.

Puck drop Friday is 7:30 p.m.
