Hockey and pizza. That’s a combination that seems to appeal to residents Clearwater and area – and it recently paid off in real money.
Clearwater and District Minor Hockey Association (CDMHA) was the February prizewinner for the Western Hockey League’s (WHL) Delissio Rise Up contest. The $5,000 won by the association will be used to support the youth in the local community to allow them to continue playing hockey.
“We thank Safety Mart for the support given minor hockey,” said Hans Wadlegger, CDMHA president. “They really brought this forward for us.”
“As for Delissio, we’ll think of a way to thank them properly.”
The Delissio Rise Up for Minor Hockey promotion invited Western Canadian fans to submit universal product code cut-outs from Delissio pizza boxes from Oct. 1 – Feb. 29.
Monthly prizes were awarded from October to February to the minor hockey association that sent in the most UPC codes during that month. Each monthly winner was awarded $5,000 to go towards its hockey program.
In addition to the monthly prizes, a grand prize of $25,000 was awarded to the minor hockey association that sent in the most UPC codes per capita throughout the entire five months of the promotion. This year’s grand prizewinner was the Lac du Bonnet Minor Hockey Association of Lac du Bonnet, MB.
