Game supports charity

An annual hockey game in Revelstoke raised $800 for charity.  

Each year in February the Revelstoke RCMP Detachment Mounties play the Revelstoke Fire Rescue Service Firemen in a charity hockey game.

The "Mounties" brought the cup home this year.

"We came to the ice this year with a new addition, "Mountie" specific hockey uniforms," said Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky, Revelstoke RCMP. "Acknowledging the RCMP’s ceremonial uniform, the hockey jersey was created as a "Red Serge", complete with Sam Brown and lanyard."

This year the Mounties won the cup with an 8-4 win over the Firemen.

The money raised from the game has been split between the two fire charities; Muscular Dystrophy and the Burn Unit and for the RCMP, the local charity, Trees for Tots.

The day included two minor hockey games, a free family skate, the charity game, a jersey dedication from a local NHL player and was topped off with by a KJHL Revelstoke Grizzlies game

"We’d like to thank all of the community who came out that day in support of this great annual community event," Grabinsky said. "It’s always an honour and pleasure for us to participate, and of course secure the cup for another year. We are already practicing up for defending our title next year."

Ths years game was held on Feb. 17.
