The West Kelowna Warriors Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is pleased to announce that the 7th annual Pastor Don’s Christmas Hamper Night will take place on Saturday, December 9th against the Trail Smoke Eaters.
The night has been a big success since it’s inception in 2010 as the cash donations during the game will be used to purchase groceries and deliver the goods to needy families in West Kelowna to provide an opportunity to have a holiday meal.
“It is an honour as the Warriors chaplain to coordinate our 7th annual West Kelowna Warriors Christmas Hamper Night,” commented Warriors chaplain and Pastor Don Richmond, “At our home game on December 9th, we will collect funds that will be used to purchase groceries for 50 hampers, which will be delivered to needy families in West Kelowna.”
“I am very grateful for the wonderful support toward this hamper program that has been shown by the Warriors faithful fan base in the past,” Richmond continued, “I am confident that this year, we will have success at our Christmas Hamper night.”
To get more insight on Saturday night’s festivities as well as many of the events going on through the month of December, Warriors play-by-play broadcaster Trevor Miller chatted with Director of Business Operations Alex Draper during Saturday night’s game against Wenatchee:
