Helping out the Vees chaplain

The Penticton Vees have announced they will donate 50 per cent of walk up ticket sales from tonight's (Friday's) home game, against the Trail Smoke Eaters to the team chaplain who is battling bone cancer.

There will also be a table set up at the rink for season ticket holders to donate to the family of Jamie Weberg.

The team is also working with the BCHL office to have a recent fine they were levied to instead be donated to the Weberg family.

Weberg, a pastor at the Penticton Church of Nazarene, said he is humbled by the outpouring of support.

"It's always easier being on the giving side, where you can be helping people out," he said. "But you just have to get past the pride, as I don't know how long this road is."

Residents are invited to show their support along with the Vees tonight. There will be a brief video shown of Weberg thanking the team, prior to the puck drop at 7 p.m.
