KCOHL gives $8,000 to Cranbrook charities
The Key City Oldtimers Hockey League (KCOHL) announced June 28 that the league has donated $5,000 to the Cranbrook Food Bank Society and $3,000 to Cranbrook’s Operation Street Angel.
Most of these funds came from the KCOHL’s annual charity golf tournament, held May 25, at the Cranbrook Golf Club. Members later decided that the league would top up the donations, for a total of $8,000.
Additionally, on June 4, league president Scott Smiley presented two graduates of Mount Baker Secondary School with the annual KCOHL Scholarship in the amount of $1,250 each.
“We are a league that likes to give back to our community, and this year was no exception,” said Smiley. “We would like to thank our incredible sponsors and all those who donated and supported our golf tournament. Thanks to Paul Whittingham, Tom Pungor and the great staff at the Cranbrook Golf Club for hosting each year.”
Online registration for the KCOHL’s 2019-2020 season is now open. Annual league fees are $375 per player and $50 for the spare list. In-person registration will begin the middle of August at Players Bench Sports. For more information, see kcohl.teamopolis.com or email [email protected].
