A student team from Lambton College is set to face off against the Ontario Provincial Police in a charity hockey game to raise money for youth homelessness.
The annual showdown organized by students from the college’s police foundations program takes place Jan. 29 at 3:30 p.m., immediately following the Sarnia Sting and Saginaw Spirit game at the Progressive Auto Sales Arena.
Admission to the charity game is free for all attendees, but donations of unopened toiletries will be accepted for The Hub youth centre in Sarnia.
Former NHL referee and OPP officer Don Van Massenhoven will officiate the charity game and provide autographs during the second intermission of the Sting game.
A signed Sting jersey will also be up for grabs.
The charity match will also be featured on a special Sportsnet edition highlighting charity hockey games across the province, to be aired in February.
Tickets for the Sting game on Sunday, Jan. 29 can be purchased at Lambton College by phoning 519-542-7751, ext. 3347. Anyone wishing to donate toiletries for The Hub prior to the game can also contact this number.
