Rumble raises big bucks for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley

A team of Sharks from LK Law feasted on the competition, once again, at the annual Grant Thornton Community Classic – Road Hockey Rumble.

The LK Law Sharks won the charity ball hockey tournament for the third time in four years.

A squad from the organizer, Grant Thornton, finished in second place.

From Saturday’s day-long event, which drew eight adult teams and about 150 players, as well as a handful of kids, an estimated $10,000 was raised for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley, which pairs children (also known as “Littles”) with adult mentors (“Bigs”).

All funds raised go directly to the programs administered by the BBBSL.

“It was really good,” said Troy Melnychuk from Grant Thornton. “I played and it was a lot of fun for me.”

“I think we really stepped it up a notch this year.”

With the BC Seniors Games closing ceremonies happening at the McLeod Athletic Park sports box on Sept. 13, the fundraiser moved from there to the north parking lot of the Langley Events Centre.

Langley Rivermen junior A hockey team players volunteered their time to officiate the games.
