The charity hockey game, which will see firefighters take on RCMP officers, was originally scheduled for Feb. 16 but was postponed due to the weather.

New Boundaries fundraiser rescheduled for March 30

The charity hockey game pitting local firefighters against RCMP officers has a new date.

The original game, scheduled for Feb. 16, was cancelled due to a snowstorm.

The New Boundaries Hockey Charity Classic is now slated to begin at 3 p.m. March 30, giving the players ample time to practice before the puck drops at the Hants Exhibition Arena in Windsor.

The proceeds raised at the charity game will be donated to New Boundaries, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing adults with diverse abilities with opportunities to enhance their vocational, social and life skills.

Melanie Singleton, operations manager at New Boundaries, says the money collected at the hockey game will help New Boundaries continue to fulfill its mandate.

“We support the community as much as we can when we can and we’d like our clients to be a part of this community and to feel the support that the community has to offer,” said Singleton, in a previous interview with the Hants Journal.

Attendees over the age of 18 who pay the $5 admission fee will be eligible for a chance to shoot a puck and win a 2014 Chrysler 200 from Pothier Motors. One person will be selected to shoot for the car by a random draw.
