The Kamloops & District Labour Council sponsored a Labour Night with the Kamloops Storm Hockey team on Saturday February 4th. This was a great opportunity for members of labour unions to enjoy some great hockey as well as being treated to some incredible Wiener Dog Races.
In addition to being a fun night out for labour, the event also raised money for Angels Animal Rescue Society.
The Kamloops & District Labour Council held a free draw for a $200 gift certificate to the Smorgasbord Deli, a locally owned and operated restaurant, deli, grocery and fair trade store. At the end of the night, KDLC president Lois Rugg pulled the winning ticket for Kira Schmidt. Also, our own Dean Regnier of CUPE 3500 won the Angels Animal Rescue Society’s 50/50.
Kamloops Storm Hockey is fast and exciting and even though the Storm lost by one late goal by the Revelstoke Grizzlies, the packed house left smiling. It was a close game right to the end, which made for an excellent evening.
During the first and second period, the over 800 strong crowd was treated to the first heats of the wiener dog races, with the final happening between the second and third period. After some tight racing, Maggie was crowned the winner out of 49 wiener dogs.
Our very first Labour Night with the Kamloops Storm was an fantastic success. We can’t wait until Labour Night 2024.
