One lucky Penticton Vees fan will be leaving the South Okanagan Events Centre Wednesday with a car.

Tickets for a car from Huber Banister Chevrolet will be sold for $2 during the Vees game against the Vernon Vipers. Proceeds are going to the School District 67 Breakfast program.

“We wanted to do something exciting for the Vees,” said Huber Banister Chevrolet Penticton owner Ken Huber. “Someone will drive the car home that night. No gimmicks, no little hole to shoot a puck through. Someone is driving a car home after the game, guaranteed.

Wednesday night is being billed as a college and hospitality industry night. Tickets to any seat in the SOEC are $5. There will be other specials as well as the Vees want to make it an affordable fun night and top it off with a really unique giveaway.

Vees notes: The Vees rolled out an unconventional season ticket pricing structure by dropping season ticket prices in half during the summer. Attendance is up 24 per cent over last season.
