The Vancouver Giants announced on Wednesday that the hockey club will be collecting donations in support of Basics for Babies for Fill the Rink night when the G-Men host the Portland Winterhawks on Wednesday, March 1st, at 7:00pm.
Juno Award winning, multi-platinum selling country music star Dallas Smith will be in attendance at the game for the ceremonial puck drop before hosting a meet and greet with fans.
“Very excited that the Giants are now in my backyard. Great for families in the lower mainland. Can’t wait to be a part of this night,” Smith commented.
To qualify for the meet and greet, fans must bring a minimum $10 cash donation to Basics for Babies. Meet & greet vouchers will go out to the first 150 fans to drop off their donation at the Basics For Babies booth outside Gate 2. Smith will be signing autographs and taking photos with fans during the first intermission in the Envision Financial Banquet Hall.
“Basics for Babies is a great initiative that we are excited to be able to support,” said Dale Saip, Giants Senior Vice President. “We’re also thrilled that Dallas Smith will be joining us at the game to give our fans an added incentive to donate to this very worthy cause.”
Basics for Babies was created in 1994 when 93.7 JRfm recognized a chronic shortage of baby products at Lower Mainland Food Banks. With the help of partners, Basics for Babies has raised over $2 million and hundreds of thousands of pounds of diapers, baby food, formula, pabulum, and other items.
