The Critters Are Coming!
The CFCW Critters will be coming to Vermilion on January 10, and will play the Buffalo Coulee Sabres at 7 p.m. The Critters are a volunteer hockey team who raise funds all across the province for all types of causes. On December 13, the Critters played in Leduc raising $6,500 for a Thorsby non-profit organization. So far this season, they have raised $24,500, and overall they have raised $1,172,925. In Vermilion, they will be fundraising for a new ice plant, which will benefit a multitude of organizations and area athletes. Doors will open at 6 p.m., and tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students, and 12 and under will be free. Tickets are available at Webb’s, Vermilion Credit Union, or the Vermilion Town Office. “Get your tickets now before we sell out; they would make great stocking stuffers. The event is good for children, seniors, corporate team-building, everything; we want everybody there! There will be a bunch of door prizes, silent auction items, and 50/50 draws,” said organizer, Russ Cameron. He noted that helping to support the fundraiser, there will be representation from the Vermilion Skating Club, The Vermilion Curling Club, Pond Hockey, Vermilion Minor Hockey, and players, coaches, team staff, and parents from the area. “The current ice plant is 60 years old. The Critters’ people are superstars! They are comical, and their games are held strictly to raise funds for communities,” said Cameron. For more information, you can call Russ at 780-853-0099.
