The 3rd Annual Winter Classic Hockey Jamboree in Support of B.C. Children Hospital was held over the week end at Apex Resort.  Six Teams of Atom age players battled on the ice for the tittle.  But the biggest battle took place off the ice. 

The participants, players, parents and organizers were able to raise over $24000.00 for BC Children's Hospital Foundation.  The tournament was hosted by the Kelowna Atom Development B team and featured teams from Pentiction, West Kelowna, Burnaby Winter Club, SeaFair and Vancouver.  In all, close to 120 players aged 9 and 10 took the ice.   In the end, the Kelowna team won in the Tournament against the Burnaby Winter Club.

This event started 3 years ago and has taken more momentum every year, raising respectively $10000, $17000 and now $24000 for a total of over $51000.00 in 3 years.  All participants really embraced the challenges of raising money, engaging in activities ranging from Bottle Drives, Silent Auctions to selling Hot Chocolates on cold winter nights at local ski hills.  Coming together as a group to not only play our favourite sport but to support one of our own who little player who is currently battling Cancer made it that much more meaningful.  The event was a great success again in all aspects and supported a great cause.
