Braves Anneswer 2 Cancer is Back February 10th
Supporting the community is a huge part of the Saanich Jr. Braves foundation. This year we’re excited to announce a game-night charity fundraising partnership with Anneswer to Cancer!
Anneswer to Cancer is an annual soccer tournament to raise money for Victoria Hospice.
In 2010, Brett Hyslop lost his mom to cancer and spent many days with her at Hospice. Months later, he along with Steph Steiner, created this event in her memory to raise funds for families with Mesothilioma and needing Hospice care. (learn more)
Join the Saanich Jr B Hockey at their February 10th game to raise money for Victoria Hospice: 6:30pm, Pearkes Arena.
Wearing pink jerseys, the team will play hard in a game where all proceeds will be donated to the Anneswer to Cancer group — who in turn donate to the Victoria Hospice, in the name of Anne Gerard.
This is one of many events that will support the main fundraising event, an annual family soccer tournament in May!
From February 10th’s game the Braves will donate proceeds from the following:
- Pre-sale tickets to the game available through Brett Hyslop, Merideth Campbell-Jess, Brad Cook, Laura Peltier, Angela Dibden, and SJB players.
- Proceeds from a post game auction of game-worn pink jerseys!
- Players online fundraising & head shave
Come out and help us make a difference, help the Braves support Anneswer to Cancer and show Victoria Hospice how much we appreciate all that they do.
