APEX Resort-January 4-7, 2018

The 4th Annual Winter Classic Hockey Jamboree in Support of BC Children Hospital took place this last week end at Apex Resort.  Once again, hockey players aged 9-10 competed on the outdoor rink.  The host team Kelowna was joined by teams from Penticton, Spokane, Burnaby Winter Club, Seafair (Richmond) and the North Shore Winter Club.  The Penticton Jr. Vees came out as the tournament Champions but in the end, all the participants, players, parents and organizers were the true winners, raising $26462.75 for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

This event started 4 years ago and has taken more momentum every year, raising respectively $10000, $17000, $24000 and now $26462.75 for a total of over 77000.00 in 4 years.  The success off ice are due to the commitment of over 120 players and their families, who all came together as a group to support the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and its patients while using hockey as a common ground.
