The South Okanagan Flames will be playing their last home game on June 20 at 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Arena, when they host the Vernon Tigers.

Flames president Kevin Harms said fans have been wonderful and as a thank you for their continued loyalty, the game will be free of charge. However, the Flames will be raising money through donations that will be accepted at the door to support a fellow Lacrosse player Kody Ramsay,18, from Abbotsford diagnosed recently with cancer (recurrent non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma).

“Kody was—until an injury sidelined him—an active participant in the lacrosse scene and has been battling this disease for more than nine months,” said Harms. “Kody and his family have had to deal with lengthy stays at Vancouver General and have not had an easy time of it.”

Ramsay is also the nephew of Harms, who said the event should be a lot of fun as the product on the floor has been great this year and exceeded expectations given their first full year in Penticton.

The Flames are currently sitting in fifth spot in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League standings and are looking to improve on their position for the playoffs.
