Charity Hockey Game

A hockey team in southwestern Manitoba will hold a fund raising exhibition game this weekend in Killarney.
The Southwest AAA bantam Cougars will hold their second annual fund raising game on March 8th at the Shamrock Centre in Killarney.
Lori Rommelaere is a parent of one of the players and helping coordinate the game. She says the fund raising started with a game last year and players and families thought it would be nice to hold another event this year.





Last year's fund raising game raised $5,000. Rommelaere hopes this year's game will reach that mark.
Door open at 7:30 and the game will start at 8:00pm.
