SAINT JOHN – Five Hole for Food visits the city this afternoon.
The group of hockey enthusiasts make their only New Brunswick appearance from 12-6 pm today at Long Wharf. Bring a can food. Bring a hockey stick. Support the Community Food Basket of Saint John and play some ball hockey. That’s how it works.
From their website:
Five Hole for Food is an annual coast to coast tour playing hockey to support food banks across Canada.This is the fourth stop on their cross Canada tour. So far they have played in St. John’s, Halifax, and Charlottetown. They will head to Montreal after their game in Saint John today.
We set up a rink in the heart of each city and invite anyone and everyone to come out to play hockey to fight hunger. Bring your stick, bring a can of food, and have fun. 100% of the proceeds go to the local food bank in each city.
You can visit the Saint John section of their website for more info. According to that section, “the Memorial Cup Winning Saint John Sea Dogs will have a presence at our game! Come down to see just what!”
If you can’t make it out today, you can still make a donation via the internet.
