The two sides teamed up this year to help raise funds for the foundation, a charity that helps provide support to youth and families dealing with cancer.
All season and during the final home game, volunteers have been selling raffle and 50/50 tickets to help raise funds to support the foundation’s work.
“This hockey team is just amazing for helping us do this,” said Susan Reid, regional manager for the foundation. “I simply cannot say enough about the Shield, the players, volunteers and coaches for throwing their support behind us.”
The winner of the raffle will receive a six-person Softub hot tub, complete with lid, delivery and chemicals and donated by Hot Tub Warehouse, while local artist Barbara Morton has donated a large stained-glass piece depicting a Lake Muskoka scene.
Tickets are $5 each or five for $20 and available at the home game against Rama Feb. 1, from Shield volunteers or by contacting Reid at 705-646-1629 or by email at email@example.com. During the games 50/50 tickets will also be sold with funds going to the cause.
All donations will be used to support the Child’s Voice Foundation’s Kids Life Line program, which helps pay for things such as medication, equipment, travel expenses, and the Angel Hair for Kids program, which helps supply wigs to youth with hair loss due to cancer treatment.
The draws will be held around 9:30 p.m., during the second period intermission.
