Pee wee Lakers Shopping Night

Pee wee Lakers Shopping Night Nov 10 at the Cow Cafe

  • Nov. 8, 2011 4:00 p.m.

The Lake Cowichan C1 pee wee Lakers will host a shopping night on Nov. 10 at the Cow Cafe to raise funds for tournament fees during the 2011-12 hockey season.

The admission is two dollars and all proceeds will go towards the pee wee team.

Not only for a valuable cause, the shopping night also provides an outlet for parents to purchase home goods in time for the Christmas season.

A handful of vendors will provide merchandise, most of which are local. These include Arbonne Skin Care, Scentsy Candles, Shalimar Accessories, Tupperware, Epicure, Norwex, Elaine Scheffer, Close To My Heart Scrapbooking and Stampin-Up.

Event coordinator, Indra Johel is brimming with excitement in anticipation of the approaching fundraiser. She has organized it before but until recently, the event was on hiatus for three years.

“The fundraising takes a lot of volunteers. To help a team in a town like this you need volunteers. I’m excited. It’s fun night for people from the community to come out and see what different home vendors we have,” she said.

Johel expects anywhere from 50 to 100 people to attend the Lakers fundraiser.

She noted that the Cow Cafe has been overly generous, not charging the pee wee team for venue rental costs.

“This fundraiser doesn’t cost the team anything,” Johel said.

In an age where hockey equipment, gas and team and tournament fees are overly expensive for families to cope with, Johel thinks every bit of fundraising counts.

‘It’s worthwhile we do raise money. We’re not putting any money out so whatever we make that night we bring in,” she added.
