A Chilliwack Minor Hockey team hopes to score big bucks in the Stagg Chili Saves for Success contest.
Chilliwack’s peewee A1 Bruins have thrown their hats into the ring, taking on teams from across the country in a race to get the most online votes. Chilliwack is competing in the Western conference, and currently sits fifth out of 10 teams.
As of Monday morning, they’ve collected 369 votes.
The midget Port Coquitlam Raiders lead with 608 votes. The Surrey Penguins (hockey 4) are second with 588 votes, the Rat River Saints (atom A) are third with 480 votes and the BC Bears (Ridge Meadows, atom) are fourth with 406 votes.
The contest closes March 7.
The team with the most votes will win $5,000.
The second through fifth place teams will each claim $2,000 and two more prizes will be awarded by random draw.
Prize monday is to be earmarked to offset team expenses such as ice-time and equipment.
