The United Way of Central Alberta held its fifth annual Sockey Night in Red Deer event on Nov. 15, in partnership with the Red Deer Rebels, Telus, Redcore, Solace Salon in iHotel, CIBC and Dave Brunner Fine Art Photography.

Each year, the Sockey Night event aims to raise funds and awareness for the United Way campaign while also providing a great opportunity to teach kids the importance of giving back to others in need.

“The money raised at the game will be invested to help people move out of poverty and will have a lasting impact,” said Dustin Sundby, 2013 volunteer campaign co-chair. “At the end of the game, Rebel fans helped their community in more ways than one.”

New socks were brought to the game or were purchased to be thrown onto the ice during the second intermission. The hundreds of socks collected were then distributed to four local agencies with the help of volunteers from BMO and Redcore: Central Alberta AIDS Network Society, Canadian Mental Health Association, Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society and Safe Harbour Society.

In total, $3,750 was raised from this event to bring the current campaign total to $1,475,469 or 65 per cent of the $2,250,000 goal.
