Remax Sea-to-Sky Hockey Challenge and Puck Bunny Ball at Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle Hotel

Feb 4, 2006

By Catherine Barr


"Two games, two cities, one great cause". That's the tagline from this past weekend's Remax Sea-to-Sky Hockey Challenge and Puck Bunny Ball. Two charity hockey games, played in Whistler and Vancouver respectively, teamed up former NHLers with famous faces like the Hansen Brothers and Showcase's Trailer Park Boys. The Puck Bunny Gala after party, held Saturday at the Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle, featured live music by the likes of Barney Bentall, Rock and Hyde and Trooper. All proceeds raised to go support the Pacific Sport Performance Fund and their Canadian athletes in training.
