Fans who bring a non-perishable food donation to the Penticton Vees/Merritt Centennials game on Feb. 8 will receive discounted tickets.  Adults and seniors will be offered $10 tickets and children and student tickets are $2. The Penticton Vees will donate $1 from each adult and senior ticket purchased directly to School District 67’s breakfast program. The B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame Society has also stepped up to the plate and will be donating proceeds from the night’s 50/50 draw to the breakfast program. During the Vees’ intermissions, the Hogs and Hosers will duke it out for bragging rights by competing in their own 20-minute hockey game.  Like the RCMP and firefighters, local schools have also been invited to compete.  Participating schools have the opportunity to win an additional $1,500, courtesy of Underwriter’s Insurance, for highest attendance, being the loudest and bringing the most signs. Donation bins are now set up at the Valley First Box Office (at the SOEC). Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.
