The Sixth Annual Christmas Classic hockey game will be at the Castlegar Community Complex on Dec. 23 from 7 to 9 p.m., and then the after party will be at the Element Night cClub from 10 p.m. to 2 p.m.  The goal of the Christmas Classic Hockey game and after party is to raise funds for the Selkirk Saints Championship Hockey Program.  The hockey game is free, but there will be raffles, prizes and a beer garden.  The element will have a $5 cover charge with proceeds being donated to the Saints.

After the game, safe ride shuttle buses (provided by the Mountain Transport) will arrive at the Complex to provide safe rides to the Element after party.

 “The Selkirk Saints Hockey Program is extremely excited to be a part of the CGHL Christmas Classic Hockey Game again this year,” said Selkirk Saints head coach and GM Brent Heaven.  “This is a great event which raises funds for many local charitable foundations, and one that is always fun to attend and be a part of.  We encourage everyone to come out and support the event which helps spread the holiday spirit, brings families together and raises funds for a great cause. #SaintsNation.”

It’s all for a good cause, and a perfect time to see everyone over the holiday break.

 “We started this thing as a small hockey game to just bring friends together and, over the past five years, we’ve been able to help raise over $7,000 towards local groups like the Rebels, Selkirk Saints, CGHL and the Castlegar Broomball Association,” said organizer and originator Bergen Price. “This speaks to the clos- knit community in which we are fortunate enough to have grown up.  People come out and are so supportive.”

The Christmas Classic would especially like to thank Dale Donaldson (Source for sports), Steve Cartwright (Cartwrights Pub), Joanne Bursey (Century 21), Mountain Transport, Lordco and the Element Night Club for all their support in making this event possible.
