Vancouver, B.C. – Ahead of Remembrance Day weekend, the Vancouver Giants will be donning commemorative Vimy Ridge themed jerseys when they take the ice against the Kamloops Blazers on Friday at 7:30 PM at the Langley Events Centre. These game-worn jerseys are available for purchase via ONLINE AUCTION beginning this morning. The auction expires on Tuesday, November 7th at NOON and proceeds from the auction will go towards the Vimy Foundation.
“It’s very important for the Giants and for the WHL as a whole to pay our respects to those who have fought and those who continue to fight for our daily freedoms,” said Giants Senior Vice President, Dale Saip. “Additionally we’re going to have a Sopwith Camel replica plane on display outside the Langley Events Centre and author Warren Sommer who wrote ‘Canucks in Khaki’ will be on the concourse selling and signing copies of his book.”
