With last year’s B.C. Hockey League Five Hole for Food champions in the house, the Cowichan Valley Capitals will make a bid to win the 2015/16 title this Saturday.
The Powell River Kings claimed the honour in 2014/15 by collecting more than 10,000 pounds of non-perishable food donations as BCHL teams gathered up more than 37,000 pounds of donations for their local food banks. Capitals fans are encouraged to help beat the Kings’ mark from last year with donations for the Cowichan Valley Basket Society.
As an added incentive, any fans who bring two non-perishable items on Saturday will receive half-price admission.
The game at the Island Savings Centre between the two leading teams in the Island Division begins at 7 p.m.
