Homebase is a fundraising event to support the Better Together campaign to build and operate JoeAnna’s House, a home away from home for the families of patients from across B.C. who must travel to KGH for advanced medical care. The event was initiated by former Kelowna Rocket and current Buffalo Sabre’s defenseman, Josh Gorges and fellow Rockets alumni, Blake Comeau.
