Chuck a puck

CHUCK-A-PUCK

Brandon, MB. – The Western Hockey League’s Brandon Wheat Kings, in conjunction with PhysioFirst have announced that plans are well underway for another season of “Chuck-a-Puck”.

Starting this October, the Wheat Kings and PhysioFirst will again be presenting “Chuck-a-Puck” during the second intermission of selected games, including seven Saturdays. Proceeds will benefit western Manitoba charities.

“Chuck-a-Puck” is a great visual promotion that has the ability to offer various charitable organizations with outstanding fundraising opportunities.

How does it work? Fans attending Saturday night home games will have a chance to purchase a (numbered) foam puck before the game and during the first intermission. Immediately following the second period of play, those fans that do will be urged to toss it toward the center ice face-off circle.

How can Charities become involved? They can register by contacting Doug Treloar at PhysioFirst at 727-6806 or by email at phys1st@mts.net

What must a Charity provide? In order to participate, local groups will need to provide a registered charity number and a minimum number of volunteers – for both in game puck sales and on ice cleanup. As well, participating charities must provide a grand prize for their respective game (valued at least $100).

“PhysioFirst is happy to return as the Title Sponsor of this worthwhile program,” says Treloar. “This is very much in keeping with our clinic’s strong commitment to the community and to local charities.”

The list of ten (10) designated home games for the 2016-17 season include the following:
