In an effort to increase its outreach to the community the Williams Lake Stampeders are giving away hundreds of tickets to schools in the district.

“I e-mailed principals at every school, all the way down to 108 Mile, and offered them 40 tickets each, “ said Stampeders’ sponsorship and marketing director Calvin Dubray, as he handed over a bundle of tickets to Laurelee Dubuc at Lake City Secondary’s Williams Lake campus this week.

Dubuc organizes the school’s 10 Students of the Month program and said she was pleased with the donation.

The Stampeders are also planning to start giving out a scholarship every year, available to local students.

“We really want to support education and all the great things teachers and principals are doing in their schools to promote positive behaviour support,”  said Dubray, who is also a local elementary school principal.

The tickets will go to students who are recognized for going above and beyond expectations.

Home games scheduled for the upcoming season are Sat. Nov. 1 vs. Lac La Hache,  Sat. Nov. 8 vs. Prince Rupert,  Sat. Nov. 15 vs. Lac La Hache, Sun. Nov. 16 vs. Kitimat,  Sat. Nov. 22 vs. Terrace, Sat. Dec. 13 vs. Quesnel and Fri. Jan. 9 vs. Lac La Hache.
