Jersey Tuesday kicks off in Port Alberni

Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society wants people to wear their favourite hockey jerseys on Tuesdays to support Bulldog bid.

Support the drive to buy the Bulldogs by wearing your favourite hockey jersey every Tuesday in May.

Wear your favourite hockey jersey today and show the Alberni Valley Bulldogs how much you love them!

The Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society is calling on all Alberni Valley hockey fans to wear their favourite jersey every Tuesday in support of their bid to buy the Bulldogs. They’ve already raised more than $125,000 but they need to raise $500,000 by June 1.

The PAJHS is hosting another fun afternoon today (May 15) at the Multiplex beginning at 5 p.m. Drop by to witness the engagement of two special dogs, Alberni and Vallerey, as their “tail” of community love continues.

The board of the PAJHS has created two initial opportunities for people to pledge their financial support for

this project: 1) Donors Club – Make a $200 charitable donation or multiple $200 donations to be part of the Donors Club.

2) Founders Club – Make a $5,000 charitable donation or multiple $5,000 donations to be part of the Founders Club.

These donations will not be deposited until the society decides after June 1st that there is sufficient public

support or there are no other unforeseen issues that prevent their purchase of the majority ownership in the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

For anyone interested in donating to the cause, there are six locations where you can make your donation;

o At the Port Alberni City Hall using a cheque
