Kelowna businesses and NHL alumni pair up to raise $100K for food bank

Two Okanagan companies and a roster of 12 NHL greats have mustered up an impressive sum for our local food bank.

On Sunday, Dec. 22, BNA Brewing Co. and JDS Energy & Mining faced-off on the ice of Prospera Place for their annual Pros Vs Joes Hockey Tournament.

Each team was paired with a line of NHL alumni’s including Josh Gorges, Wade Redden and Jordan Tootoo with one goal in mind — collecting monetary and food donations for the Central Okanagan Food Bank during one of the most trying times of year.

After a light-hearted battle, the players and spectators who attended managed to muster up an incredible $100,000 for the organization!
