Eagles Aim to Fill the Rink for Kidsport Night
Surrey, BC - The Surrey Eagles are aiming to fill the rink for the team's home game against the Powell River Kings on December 14th in support of Kidsport.
Kidsport is a non-profit organization that raises money to help provide children living in poverty from the ages of five to 18 with the opportunity to play organized sports that they otherwise would be unable to afford. One dollar from every ticket sold to the game on December 14th will be donated to Kidsport Surrey White Rock, helping children in the local community.
The Eagles would also like to encourage individuals and businesses to donate as well. For every $12.50 that is donated, the Kidsport Ticker on the Eagles website, which keeps track of the amount of money from each ticket that will go to Kidsport, will increase by one cent. The seating capacity at the South Surrey Arena is 1,250.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Kidsport for the game on December 14th," said Eagles Director of Sales and Marketing Andrew Delbaere. "Every child should have the chance to play sports as it keeps them healthy and provides them with many skills and life lessons that are incredibly valuable."
To donate money or to purchase tickets to the game, call the Surrey Eagles office at 604-531-GOAL (4625).
