Fundraiser for Mental Health at Dec 3rd Home Game

The Preds are excited to be hosting a Buddy Check for Jesse Fundraiser at our December 3rd home game against the Victoria Cougars. Teams will be showing their support with green tape on their sticks and will also be fundraising for the mental health program that was created by Saanich resident Stu Gershman in memory of his son Jesse.

The program was developed for coaches to deliver to their teams to create an environment where teammates are more aware of potential mental health issues and are prepared to step in with support when they see a teammate, friend or family member struggling.

Please join the Preds at their home rink at Pearkes Arena to support this important cause on Friday December 3rd. Stu will be on hand to say a few words and take part in a ceremonial puck drop at 6:30pm. Tickets are available at the door.
