The Fort Saskatchewan Minor Hockey Association raised four and a half shopping carts of food for the Fort Saskatchewan Food Gatherer’s Society.
The fourth annual Fill the Net fundraiser took place Sunday (December 17) at the Jubilee Recreation Centre (JRC).
Seven Fort Saskatchewan hockey teams took part in the all-day event.
“They came through with flying colours. That net was so full," said Atom A Rangers manager, Kim Polansky. "When I loaded the van it was packed to the roof, it was incredible. It was a great turnout."
More than 700 families are involved in Fort minor hockey.
“I think we can always count on our Fort minor hockey families, they come through no matter what we ask them to do,” added Polansky.
Throughout the day, the Novice 3A, Atom A, Atom AA, Pewee A, Pewee AA, Midget 15 AAA and the Fort Saskatchewan Hawks each played a game.
