PENTICTON - Edmonton Oilers alumni are making their way to the Okanagan for a charity event next week.

The Gord Bamford Foundation hosts its first annual Pics and Sticks charity event with a hockey game featuring the Edmonton Oilers Alumni versus The Alumni.

The game takes place at the South Okanagan Events Centre on Wednesday, May 15 at 7 p.m. and will feature NHL alumni Glenn Anderson, Chris Joseph, Marty McSorley and Ron Lowe.

Hosted by Gord Bamford and Kevin Primeau, the game is an opportunity for people to play with NHL alumni and country music stars Chad Brownlee, Aaron Pritchett, Dallas Smith and Gord Bamford.

The event provides funds to South Okanagan charities like the Children’s Miracle Network, Make-A -Wish Foundation, Basic for Babies as well as the area’s minor hockey associations.

Pics and Sticks is a mix of sport and music, with Wednesday’s charity hockey game, followed by Thursday's 18-hole golf tournament at Nk’Mip Canyon Golf Course in Oliver and a banquet and concert at Spirit Ridge in Osoyoos.

“This event brings together a few of my favourite things. Country music, hockey, golf, and community support. I’m really looking forward to watching this event unfold in one of Canada’s most spectacular settings,” Gord Bamford said in a media release.
