Virden Oil Capitals and Hockey fights cancer

The Virden Oil Capitals will be teaming up Virden Ford and Boston Pizza in conjunction with our players and our fans in SW Manitoba as we once again help raise proceeds to the Canadian Cancer Society, in what has now become a yearly ritual: “Hockey Fights Cancer Month” in November.

Virden Ford will be our game host this coming Friday, the 23rd, as we face off in a rematch of last year’s league final vs the Steinbach Pistons.  The Oil Capitals will be wearing commemorative “Hockey Fights Cancer” warmup jerseys and throughout the game “Hockey Fights Cancer Month” colours will be worn.  The warm up jerseys will be auctioned off via silent auction all game on the concourse up until the end of the game.  Can’t be at the game and you wish to put a reserve bid in? We can help you with this as well; please send a reserve bid via email from now up until before game time this Friday at marketing@oilcapshockey.com  The team will also have other “Hockey Fights Cancer Month” events and videos preceding and throughout the game commemorating the importance of the event.

All net proceeds from the sale of the jerseys will go towards the Canadian Cancer Society.

Together as coaches, players, and fans we look to inspire hope and courage for those who are living with, going through and moving past cancer.
