Submitted by EKFH on 16-12-2014

Cranbrook, BC…. ICU snapd, a Hockey Night in Cranbrook was a fun night and a boost to EKFH’s Starlite Campaign. Proceeds from the event are focused toward funding equipment for the new Intensive Care Unit currently under construction at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.

snapd East Kootenay Newspaper was proud to team up with the Kootenay ICE and EKFH for a game night on 12th December with the Kootenay ICE victorious over the Prince Albert Raiders in overtime.

EKFH volunteers teamed up with a snapd photographer to capture some of the many hockey fans supporting the Starlite Campaign while making a donation for the ICU or bidding on silent auction items. Many thanks to Matt Fraser & the Boston Bruins, Bridge Interiors, Alpine Toyota, Heritage Inn, Save On Foods, Cranbrook Street Liquor Store, Investors Group and EKFH for providing items for the auction and to the lucky fans taking home some great holiday gifts. At the end of the evening the generosity of hockey fans contributed over $2,000 toward EKFH’s fundraising effort.

Thank you as well to the two contestants for stepping up to the fun and frolic of the on ice ICU snapd turkey, bedpan and IV pole race. Kurt Swanson, Owner of Car and Pet Wash and Luis Rodriguez of Northstar GM provided fierce competition but in the end both contestants went home with a turkey compliments of SaveOn Foods and the winner Mr. Swanson with an additional snapd gift basket.

The Starlite Campaign is underway and every dollar and every star counts, please consider a donation to support EKFH and equipment for the ICU, visit www.ekfh.ca.
