Friday night’s Surrey Eagles game at South Surrey Arena will be played in honour of former Peace Arch News publisher Linda Klitch, who passed away in late September.
All proceeds from the B.C. Hockey League game’s 50/50 draw and toonie toss will support the Linda Klitch Legacy Fund, an initiative of the White Rock South Surrey Community Foundation.
Additionally, local businesses and individuals are taking part in a corporate challenge, where money is donated per Eagles’ goal Friday, when they take on the Victoria Grizzlies.
By press deadline Wednesday, local businesses – including Peace Arch News and parent company Black Press – had pledged a total of $2,200 per goal.
Friday’s game begins at 7 p.m. at South Surrey Arena.
For tickets, call 604-531-4625 or stop by the team’ box office at the arena (2199 148 St.).
