Midgets face Eagles alumni in Hamper Fund game

PORT McNEILL-Rep hockey squad hosts former standouts Sunday afternoon at Chilton Regional Arena

PORT McNEILL—The North Island Eagles hockey players of the past and present will face off Sunday in a game to benefit the Gazette Hamper Fund.

The Eagles rep midgets will face an Eagles alumni squad at 2:40 p.m. at Chilton Regional Arena in the benefit game, the first of several Hamper Fund benefits to be hosted by the TriPort Minor Hockey Association.

Admission is by donation, with all proceeds to benefit the fund to help needy families this Christmas. Fans may bring new toys or non-perishable food items for donation, and those goods will be placed in the hampers.

The Eagles will also hold 50/50 draws and promise plenty of fun for the entire community.

In December, each Eagles home game — whether in Port McNeill, Port Hardy or Port Alice — will benefit the Hamper Fund. Players typically bring toys for children, and fans and spectators are welcome to donate food items and toys in bins that will be placed at the arenas for those games.
