The NHL labour dispute runs so much deeper than simply fans missing hockey action.
Because of the lack of NHL action, charities like the Canucks Children’s Hospice is suffering considerably. To do their part, Nelson’s New Grand Hotel has partnered with ABLE BC to raise money for the cause. The New Grand is doing a 50/50 draw once a week to raise money. It’s $5 per ticket and you can purchase as many as you want at any time they are open. You do not need to purchase anything, just come in and buy a ticket to help support this cause. They do the draw every Wednesday night for the winner.
Earlier this week, (L-R) New Grand food and beverage manager Rob Little, bartender Matt Bonsal and waitress Stephanie Schrempp posed for a photo to promote the 50/50.
