On Friday, October 18th, 2019, The Saanich Braves are taking on the Westshore Wolves in what is sure to be an action packed game, all in the name of charity. For the fifth year in a row, and in partnership with Anneswer to Cancer, the Braves are looking to raise funds in support of Victoria Hospice, and end-of-life care in our community. The Braves will be raising funds as a team, as well as individuals, with some friendly competition gaining between players to see who can raise the most. If the Braves reach their goal of $20,000, several players have committed to going under the clippers to shave their heads, in the hopes of raising even more!
