Teaming up with Co-Operators Sean Kinney and Todd Fournier this year we had a friendly competition between the Hinton Timberwolves and the Vegreville Vipers to raise money for Ukraine.  The event was calledPucks for Ukraine and both teams raised close to $14,000.00.

The Timberwolves were given the chance to help a local non-profit group.  They chose to give the $1,000.00 donation from the Co-Operators to the Hinton Legion as the Legion supports many youth and elderly groups in Hinton.

In November for Remembrance Day the Timberwolves will be auctioning off game worn Remembrance Day jerseys with all proceeds going to the Hinton Legion.There will be online bidding for these jerseys.  

So please watch for this event and help support our local Legion.
