Second annual Gord Sleivert Memorial game scheduled for mid January

Sooke's second annual Gord Sleivert Memorial Game is scheduled for Saturday, January 18 at SEAPARC.

The second annual Gord Sleivert Memorial Game is scheduled for Saturday, January 18 at SEAPARC, starting at approximately 6:00 p.m.

This is a coaches-only fundraising hockey game named in honour of Gord Slievert. Sleivert was actively involved with Sooke Minor Hockey as a coach, a mentor and an executive as well as the president. Born on October 20, 1963, he died on April 2, 2012.

At this point, the coordinators are starting to compile a list of coaches who would like to play in the game. They are also looking for volunteers to help with the event.

If you are interested in playing or volunteering, or if you have any questions about the event, please send your contact information to t_freckles@yahoo.com.

Last year, the memorial game raised more than $3,000, and the proceeds went to a local Sooke family.
