Canadian Forces Appreciation Night at GM Place is November 1st when the Canucks take on the Colorado Avalanche.
To make this event a success, season ticket holders are being asked to donate their tickets for this particular game so that someone from our nation’s armed forces can attend.
There are three ways to donate your ticket:
Before the game, there will be a rappel demo from the rafters by Search and Rescue Technicians and during intermission there will be a Forces hockey skills competition, pitting Army vs Navy vs Air Force. The deadline to donate your ticket is October 22nd, 2009.
Update, November 2nd 2009:
The following is an email note from Sub Lieutenant Tony Wright from the Canadian Armed Forces:
“This year, 312 Canadian Forces (CF) members from Vancouver, Victoria, Comox, Aldergrove, Chilliwack and many from around the country, were able to watch some fantastic Canucks hockey. Last year, only 140 CF members were able to attend. With your help, we more than doubled our numbers. Many of the sailors, soldiers, and aircrew were hosted in catered suites donated by individuals and corporations. That was a first this year and I think much of our success can be attributed to your promotion of the game on miss604.com.”
I would like to thank every reader who helped make this night a success, you are the best!
