Eagles Bring In Over $9,000 For Oncology Unit

A strong weekend of fundraising in Sicamous.

The Sicamous Eagles auctioned off game-worn pink jerseys, and some NHL sweaters.

It's all for a local cause, and Dawn Backs has the number for us, saying "We're just absolutely amazed and proud to say that $9,202 was raised in our annual cancer fundraiser."

Backs tell us that all of those funds will support Shuswap Lake General Hospital, saying "In memory of Lorraine March and Don LaRoy to their Oncology Department for the purchase of Oncology chairs."

March and LaRoy were members of the Eagles' Board of Directors who succumbed to cancer in the past year.
