The Alberni Valley Minor Hockey Association is raffling off a car again as its major fundraiser of the year.
Van Isle Ford has provided a 2012 Mustang at cost for the organization.
“If we didn’t do this our fees would go up astronomically,” AVMHA president Al McCulloch said.
“This is something we do to keep it affordable for all kids to play hockey.”
The car has been a popular item over the years. The AVMHA would like this to become a regular fundraiser every two years, McCulloch said.
The AVMHA also has equipment available for kids that can’t afford to buy their own. Volunteers work with KidSport to find kids that need the equipment, then it is donated anonymously.
Tickets for the car draw cost $10 each and are available from any minor hockey parent, at the Alberni Valley News, Remax, LB Woodchoppers and M&D Auto.
The draw will take place Jan. 6. There is an early bird draw on Dec. 10 for $1,000.
