The Surrey Beavers AA will be hosting the 8th Annual Ruck for the Cure day on Saturday, October 26.
Sullivan Heights Park will be full of rugby action on the 26th and have a showcase game with the club’s 1st division men wearing cancer awareness themed jerseys. Each jersey in this special set was sponsored by a generous individual and or business that made this fundraising event possible. There will be delicious Triple O’s Original burgers available to purchase by donation to keep all the fans satisfied while they enjoy watching the Surrey Beaver men play rugby.
After the 1st division game is played in the afternoon the jerseys will be washed and then auctioned off that evening at the clubhouse in a live auction. There will be plenty of complimentary food back at the Beaverlodge where plenty of raffle prizes and silent auction items will be available to take home. The main event will be the live auction that will have 20+ jerseys auctioned off individually to the highest bidder. All proceeds from the day will go to the Canadian Cancer Society and to a local family affected by cancer. There will be Canadian Cancer Society volunteers on hand to take donation payments via a point of sale machine, and cash/check will both be accepted on the day too. Also keep in mind, same day donation payments are not required for larger donation amounts and can be submitted via online donation on a later date.
In the last 7 years the club has raised over $112,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society and a local family in need. The club hopes this will be their biggest event to date!
