Residents had the chance to meet the Vees hockey team on Sunday night as part of the South Okanagan Children’s Charity fundraiser, Meet the Vees.
Penticton Vees president, GM and head coach Fred Harbinson said the team wants to be part of fundraisers like Meet the Vees and bring attention to important issues.
“It’s obvious there are a lot of people and families in need and whenever our players can be a part of it, it is really special for us,” he said.
The fundraiser took place Sunday at the Barley Mill Pub. For $20, participants received a roast beef dinner, chance at door prizes, a 50/50 draw and live music.
