Incredible! The Second Annual Vancouver Island Real Estate Board REALTOR® Charity Hockey Game raised $2,684 for the Nanaimo Community Hospice Society! In last year’s inaugural outing $1,100 was raised by the all in fun competition. Held at the Nanaimo Ice Center Arena March 15, a total of 31 players – consisting of REALTORS® and members of the local business community, suited up and took to the ice to battle for their chosen cause. One of the event organizers, RE/MAX of Nanaimo’s Justus Edmundson said the on-ice competition was fierce. “The Blue Streak beat the White Sharks 7 – 6, but it was a very close game, with three post hits in the final minute!” RE/MAX of Nanaimo’s Jordan Belveal is another of the event’s founders and organizers and was instrumental in seeing the project through to its successful conclusion. About 80 fans turned out to cheer on their champions and to support the fundraising efforts. Well done everyone for having organized such a hugely successful event.
