Linda’s legacy soars at Eagles game

Hockey game raises $11,207 to continue publisher’s quest

Friday night’s Surrey Eagles game raised more than $11,000 for the Linda Klitch Legacy Fund.

The endowment fund was created the day after the sudden death of Peace Arch News former publisher Linda Klitch Sept. 26, with contributions invested and handed out annually to groups dedicated to improving community well-being.

To date, nearly $20,000 has been raised for the fund – an initiative of the White Rock South Surrey Community Foundation – and an additional $6,500 from last month’s Vintage Affair is to be added this month.

Businesses and individuals pledged a combined total of $2,200 per Eagles’ goal at South Surrey Arena Friday. The Eagles beat the Victoria Grizzlies 4-3. Another $1,260 was raised through prize draws. Prior to the hockey game, Scotiabank donated $1,147 – bringing the total to $11,207.

“It’s an awesome number, and it was a very good night,” said WRSSCF’s Debbie Magson. “It was nice to see so many members of the community out (at the game).”

Eagles players honoured Klitch during the game with red “LK” stickers on their helmets.
