The Ponoka Midget A Wolves faced off against the Central Alberta RCMP AllStars for the second year in a row in the KidSport Cup, making it a unique annual tradition for the town! All proceeds went to KidSport Ponoka, nearly tripling last year’s proceeds of the event by raising $1,700. KidSport Ponoka auctioned off an autographed Taylor Hall jersey and we thank Dolman Dental of Lacombe for the highest bid of $450.
The event was not only a great fundraiser for the cause, but it helped to raise awareness in the community. Since KidSport Ponoka kicked off in February 2013, applicant numbers have soared. As of November, KidSport Ponoka helped put 43 kids in sports; that’s over $8,000 distributed to kids in the Ponoka area this year alone!
KidSport Ponoka’s youth ambassador Tyson Matejka helped the Wolves secure a win for the second year in a row over the RCMP!
