Winterhawks to honour veterans at Friday home game

The Saugeen Shores Winterhawks have announced plans to honour our veterans at their next home game.

On Friday night, November 9th, the Winterhawks will wear specially designed Remembrance Day third jerseys as they host the defending champion Clinton Radars at The Plex at 8:30 p.m.

The jerseys will be worn one-time-only and will be auctioned off during intermissions and post-game in a mixed format of live and silent auction, hosted by guest auctioneer Bill Walker, MPP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound.

“We take for granted our ability to live freely and do things like play a game and that’s all because of the brave men and women who have defended our freedom,” said President Gord Lamont. “This is one simple way the Winterhawks can thank our veterans for their service.”

Proceeds from the jersey auction will benefit the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 155, Southampton.

“The Legion does a wonderful job supporting our local veterans and their families and hopefully we can raise enough money to make a difference,” Lamont added.

A sneak peek of the jerseys will be made available on the Winterhawks team website (winterhawks.net) and on the Winterhawks social media platforms ahead of the game.

Tickets will be available at the door at standard pricing, $8 per person.
