Border City Connects Presents our first annual Play it Forward 12 hour charity Hockey Game to be held April 29, 2022 at the Centennial Civic Centre. The game will take place from 7:30AM-7:30PM with 44 hockey players involved as well as 2 refs. Players will be asked to fundraise a minimum of $500 each to play in the game.
Border City Connects is in need of a new wheel chair lift assist van to continue the 1000’s of trips it provides each year with its service to our community. The estimated cost of this replacement is $115,000.00. The Maximum grant funding available for this is $50,000.00 leaving us $65,000.00 short, so that is our fundraising goal for this event. We will be live streaming this event all day with the ability for people to watch and donate live as well as attend the Centennial Civic Centre and watch live for a donation at the door. The Lloydminster Bobcats will be running concession services throughout the day as well.
How you can help:
Your company can become a major sponsor or make a donation. Share the sponsor package with your contacts to help raise funds and awareness of the game.
BE A PLAYER
The first 44 players will be accepted. As a player, you are required to raise a minimum of $500 to be in the game. Of course you can raise as much as possible. The top 3 players raising the most Donations will be entered into a draw to win a cash prize of $500. Pledge forms and donations are to be turned no latter than game day morning. A pledge form is also included in the E mail you are receiving.
Your signed player waiver form must be submitted no later than March 1, 2022 as we need these for the game insurance. Your signed form will confirm your participation and your guarantee of the minimum $500 fundraising goal. You will receive socks and jersey that you take home at the end of the game. Food and beverage as well as on site medical services will be provided to all players.
You will play 6 hours of the 12 hour game. There will be 2 teams of White and 2 teams of blue (10 players per team). 2 Teams will play for the first 2 hours, then there will be a flood and the other 2 teams will come on and play for 2 hours back and forth throughout the day. Score will be cumulative with a winning team announced at games end. You will be required to stay on site for the entire day.
Without this fundraiser, services for those in need are in jeopardy. We appreciate your support! For questions, to sponsor, or for further information and to register with your signed release form please contact:
