On Saturday night (Mar. 5), the Warriors return home for “Peachland Warriors Night” where they’ll wear special Peachland jerseys for the game.

“We are really excited for this event,” said Warriors President Chris Laurie. “Peachland is our neighbour community and we’d like to invite all the residents to join us as the Warriors represent Peachland, in what we’re planning to be an Annual event. Let’s celebrate beautiful Peachland and have some fun!”

Admission for the game for residents of Peachland is just $10, while The Peachland Sports Association will be running the 50/50 draw. Proceeds go to the Peachland Food Bank.
