Road hockey event helps Big Brothers Big Sisters
On Saturday, Grant Thornton will bring together the community in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley at the second annual community classic road hockey tournament.
Participants will include both adults and youth playing hockey in three separate tournaments at McLeod Athletic Park, in ths sports box.
The Grant Thornton Community Classic – Road Hockey Rumble is a community event aimed at giving back to the community in which we do business. Last year’s event raised approximately $5,500 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley (BBBSL), with over 50s people involved in the tournament. There will be a concession, silent auction, and raffles ongoing throughout the day, while the games are ongoing.
This year, Grant Thornton has again partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley in an effort to raise awareness and funds for the organization. All funds raised are going directly to the programs administered by the BBBSL.
“We are so excited that Grant Thornton is supporting mentoring in Langley in such a tangible way,” says Big Brothers Big Sisters executive director Mary Reeves. “Not only are they raising funds so we can provide more children with the support of a positive role model, but they are also promoting the importance of mentoring and the need for more men and women to volunteer in their own organization.”
The adult portion of the tournament is full, but youth teams can still register. To do so, contact Deanna Ross at 604-455-2612 or via email at Deanna.Ross@ca.gt.com.
