A local not-for-profit group is benefiting greatly from a recent NHL game.
Around 60 volunteers from the community helped sell 50/50 tickets at the Edmonton Oilers game on Monday (October 10), with proceeds going to the Fort Saskatchewan Boys and Girls Club.
"It was very successful," said Wendy Serink, executive director of the Fort Saskatchewan Boys and Girls Club. "We ended with about $16,000 that will go towards our operating costs."
Each year, the Oilers partner with local not-for-profit groups and charities to help fundraise.
"The sellers had a great time, they all came back smiling and saying that was so much fun," added Serink.
