The West Kelowna Warriors are paying homage to their neighbours to the south with the inaugural “Peachland Warriors Night” on Saturday, March 5.

When the Warriors host the Prince George Spruce Kings on Mar. 5 the Warriors will be wearing special Peachland jerseys during the game.

Fans attending the event will be able to purchase the unique Peachland jerseys at the game.

“We are really excited for this event,” said Warriors president Chris Laurie. “Peachland is our neighbour community and we’d like to invite all the residents to join us as the Warriors represent Peachland, in what we’re planning to be an annual event.”

Laurie said the idea of a Peachland Warriors Night came to them a couple years ago when they were driving through Peachland to go to a game in Penticton.

“The youth play minor hockey in West Kelowna Minor Hockey Association, so we should honour them and give them a night and welcome them as Warriors fans,” Laurie told the View.

“Any Peachland resident, this is the night to come out and support the Peachland Warriors for a night. Everything will be Peachland that night,” said Laurie.

During the game, The Peachland Sportsmen’s Association will run the 50/50, with all proceeds going to the Peachland Food Bank.

This coming Monday, Peachland Elementary students can expect a special visit to the school that just might include some floor hockey and free ticket vouchers to the game.

The Warriors are offering a special $10 discounted ticket rate to all Peachland residents. To purchase tickets with the special Peachland rate visit the Warriors office, call 250 769 7051 or visit the box office on the night of the game. Puck drop is at 7 p.m. from Royal LePage Place.
