Charities can cash in

The Abbotsford Heat is letting local non-profits earn fundraising money through ticket sales

The Abbotsford Heat hockey team is offering fundraising opportunities to non-profit organizations.

Groups obtain tickets for Heat games, sell them to members, friends or family members and keep 50 per cent of those sales for its charitable cause.

“We are opening up what we are already doing with minor hockey and expanding it to not-for-profits,” explained team president Ryan Walter.

The idea was initiated by Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman.

Charities can also acquire larger flex packs (15 tickets). Because they are easier to sell than individual tickets, the charity is given 30 per cent of the ticket price.

For information contact Justin McIntyre at 604-743-5056 or jmcintyre@abbotsfordheat.com.

A third program, the President’s Club, will begin next season. It will allow businesses to promote their brand and support local initiatives. Only 28 corporate packages will be sold, each consisting of 1,000 tickets to one Heat game. The games will be co-branded with the company name and the charity of choice. Other perks include a president’s social and other special advertising bonuses.

Call Ryan Walter at 604-743-5060 for details.
