Rockets host family day

The Kelowna Rockets first big event of the season took place on October 22nd, and it was a big success.

The Rockets hosted their third annual Family Day at London Drugs from 12pm-3pm on a breezy Sunday afternoon in which families got to spend the afternoon with the entire team. The team was signing autographs, taking photos, playing street hockey, and more. A couple of Rockets players even had their faces painted!

The event was a fundraiser for the Canucks Autism Network. 100% of the funds raised go to C.A.N.
"Our third annual London Drugs family day was a success! Tremendous thanks go to London Drugs for always being so organized as well as to Kelowna Minor Hockey for sending some of their finest to play street hockey with our Rockets," said Anne-Marie Hamilton, director of marketing for the Rockets. "The weather held out and there were lots of terrific vendors donating time and product. From the days donations and hot dog sales $895.00 was raised in support of C.A.N. All money raised remains in Kelowna to provide much needed recreational programs in support of families with children who have Autism. It was a great day had by all!"

The money raised goes towards building much needed recreational programs like learn to skate, learn to swim, learn to play hockey, etc.
