Fort Saskatchewan did their part to support the Humboldt Broncos over the weekend.
On Saturday (Apr.14), the Fort Saskatchewan Fury hosted a bottle drive in the JRC parking lot with all the funds going to the victims and the families of the tragic bus crash.
"Things went exceptional," said Chris Tonkin, the dealer principal of Straightline Chrysler. "Weather was beautiful and the people came out in floods. We had three or four massive trucks full of bottles. We're ecstatic with the turnout."
At times, cars were lined up in the parking lot to make their donations.
The Boys & Girls Club, Straightline Chrysler, Mix 107, JV Driver, Panago Pizza and Fort Saskatchewan Minor Hockey all showed their support at the bottle drive.
"Fort Saskatchewan should be proud of themselves," said Ernie Smith with the Fort Saskatchewan Fury and JV Driver. "We've shown everybody that we are a hockey town and we love our kids and we love hockey. We'll do whatever it takes to support every hockey team everywhere."
Cash donations alone topped $1400.
Straightline Chrysler pledged to match all donations up to $7,500. We'll have the totals when they are available.
