The Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey Association (RMMHA) is holding its first annual hockey pool fundraiser.

The pool will be run by  Athletix for the associaiton, and under a B.C. gaming licence.

The association has a limited window to sell tickets. Sales started on Nov. 12, and must be complete by Dec. 12.

Once the tickets are sold, the actual “pool” will be in play from Dec., 21 until April 11, 2015. There will be five weekly prizes ranging from $20 up to $300.

“These would be great stocking stuffers or a gift for the hard-to-buy for,” says the association in a press release.

RMMHA is trying out this major association fundraiser this year in an effort to offset increasing costs, and if successful, hope to make it an annual event to help offset the continually rising costs of ice and hockey.
