On Feb. 20, a charity hockey game took place at the Fort St. James Forum.

It was the first between the Apollo Hockey League and Team Conifex.

“We didn’t expect this to happen,” one of the organizers, Brett Musa said. “This ended up being a lot bigger than we expected.”

The game was a great success and brought in $1059.25 in donations for mental health services in Fort St. James in the loving memory of Michael Wiebe.

Special thanks go out to Tim Boyes (co-organizer), Brian Amyot, Joran Wingerter, Jaclyn Boyes, Tara Frederick, Christie Hoy, Jessica Gooding as well as the Fort St. James Women’s Hockey Club.

For anyone wanting to make an additional donation, contact Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation, 1475 Edmonton Street, Prince George, B.C.
