Minor hockey teams raise funds for murder victim's family
The Pee Wee Tier 3 Cranbrook Ice team raised $263.50 this weekend in a progressive 50/50 fundraiser that will be donated to a trust fund of a family in the Lower Mainland. Minor hockey associations across the province have been raising money for the family of Julie Paskall, a hockey mom who was killed outside an arena in Newton earlier this month. A parent of one of the players on the local team heard of the trust fund and decided to organize a fundraiser at a four-team home tournament this weekend. The Pee Wee Ice will be doing another fundraiser for the same cause during another tournament on Jan. 25-26 at the Memorial Arena.
