The Kelowna Rockets and the Kelowna Branch of the Canadian Red Cross are asking fans of the Rockets to help with disaster relief for the devastated country of Haiti.
Members of the Canadian Red Cross will be on hand at the Kelowna Rockets game on Friday night at Prospera Place, accepting donations for the Haitian Relief Fund.
"We feel it's very important to support the people of Hai ti in this crucial time for their country," said Gavin Hamilton, Kelowna Rockets VP of Business Development. "Our fans are very generous and we want to give them an opportunity to help this cause."
The Canadian Red Cross response to last week’s devastating Haitian earthquake continues to grow, with $6.7 million already contributed to the relief effort in cash, personnel and supplies.
