While the final score of Saturday night may have been a disappointment, the sense of community found at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre provided for the key part of the night, as Rampage fans took up the theme of the Every Child Matters observation of the evening.
In a Social Media post from Tuesday the Port notes that every one of their 177 Every Child Matters shirts were sold at Saturday's game, the shirts which were on sale by donation made for a sea of Orange for the home opener.
As we noted earlier this month, money raised from the shirt sale and a cotton candy station at the Civic Centre will be shared by the Indian Residential Schools Survivors Society and the Friendship House in Prince Rupert as well as local charities.
So far, there is no final tally available as to how much was raised from Saturday's efforts.this coming Saturday night when the Hazelton Wolverines are in town for a showdown with the Rampage.
Saturday's fundraising will continue its support of the Indian Residential School Survivors Society as well as locally the 333 Recovery Homes Society.
The Port also is keeping a running account of the funds that will be raised this season at Rampage games, with the total amount raised by season's end to be matched by the Port Authority.
