A Kelowna-based autobody shop donated a generous gift of $10,000 to the United Way team for the inaugural “Average Players Who Give a Puck.”
The spring charity hockey tournament starring 3-on-3 hockey action took place on Saturday, May 4, in support of the United Way.
Boyd Autobody and Glass is a longtime supporter of community initiatives. In its partnership with Average Players Who Give a Puck, the company ran a marketing campaign throughout the spring months to donate $50 for every windshield replacement and $20 from chip repairs to the cause.
A total of $15,600 was raised in the Give a Puck fundraiser—the brainchild of Rick Maddison, of Tempest Media. The two-day event saw not only “average” hockey, but also a draft night and auction at Freddy’s Brew Pub and an early morning golf tourney.
Next year’s tournament, the second annual event, will be held on May 2, 2020.
