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.).
