Both Burlington Lions Optimist Minor Hockey Association U18 Bulldogs teams are playing one final exhibition game at Mainway 2 on Wednesday, March 27, at 8 p.m.

This is the final season of minor hockey for a number of players, as those born in 2006 will have aged out of the program at the conclusion of this season. These teams want to make their final game a memorable one, and have decided to turn it into a food bank fundraiser. 

The U18 Bulldogs are inviting everyone to attend their final game on March 27 and bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to our local food bank. 

The pre-game ceremony begins at 7:30 p.m. and will include remarks from the coaches and a BLOMHA executive.

The 2006 program graduates are going to be honoured before they play their final game of minor hockey. Everyone in the community is invited and encouraged to attend. This is a great opportunity to see the hockey program on display, but an even better opportunity to do something good for the community while enjoying a great game.

If you aren't able to attend but would like to donate a non-perishable food item, you are more than welcome to drop it off at the BLOMHA office located at 3455 Fairview St in Burlington. 

The most needed items at local food banks include:

  • Cereal (hot and cold)
  • Large cans/tetra packs of soup
  • Juice (boxes and one litre) 
  • Granola bars (peanut free)
  • Peanut butter
  • Crackers
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned tomatoes
  • Canned veggies
  • Baked beans
