Pub night fundraiser for injured snowmobiler brings in $27,000

A fundraiser for local snowmobiler Richard Chuckie Smith helped raise around $27,000 for his wife and two children.

Smith was riding his snowmobile near Whistler on April 13 when he went over a cliff. He was taken to hospital where he remains in a coma.

Smith was an active member of the Langley slo-pitch community and a Cloverdale resident.

The pub night was held on Friday at the Thirsty Penguin Grillhouse at Langley Twin Rinks.
