National Hockey Card Day in July!

National Hockey Card Day in July!

                 National Hockey Card Day is looking a little different this year… for one it’s in July!                    Instead of shaking off your snow boots, you will be hiding from the heat in the Okanagan!

 

We are going to have a fun day in the store! Come to the McDavid door to receive your FREE packs of cards and kids will have a chance to build their set. Check out great specials around the store and Spin the Wheel with purchase to win discounts, prizes, Upper Deck Swag and more!

We also need to continue to be aware of covid safety regulations so we won’t be able to host our Scavenger Hunt this year but don’t worry it will be back again! Over the next few months, we will continue to open up more and hope by the Fall, can host more in-store events.

We know not every town has a hobby shop to pick up a pack of cards, or perhaps you are a bit hesitant about being around lots of people – we understand that! You might have a niece/nephew/ grandkids/kids etc living in a small town and you wish they could get a free pack!

We have come up with a MAIL OPTION!

We can mail a free pack of cards wherever you live in Canada! All we need is an address & toonie to cover postage. Let’s get hockey cards in as many kid’s hands as we can!

NHL Playoff Points Equal $$ for JoeAnna’s House

.For the past two years, Players Choice Sports has been a sponsor of the Homebase Baseball Tournament featuring some of our favourite NHL players; raising money for the KGH Foundation’s Project – Joeanna’s House.  JoeAnna’s House is situated beside the Kelowna General Hospital and provides a home-away-from home to keep families together when they need it most.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19, the baseball tournament has been cancelled but HOMEBASE 2.0 was created. You can purchase 50/50 tickets online – Team Gorges and Team Comeau are slugging it out to see who can sell more tickets and raise money for JoeAnna’s House .  TEAM GORGES IS CURRENTLY IN THE LEAD!!  Ticket Sales end Aug. 20 with the draw taking place Aug. 21

Jackpot Currently at $3940… and growing…  

*last updated Aug 5, 9:00am

To put the “fun” in “fundraising,” we have a Players Choice Homebase Player Challenge.

Pick a player who has participated in the Homebase softball tournament and is currently playing in the Playoffs.

For every point they get in the post-season, pick an amount of money to donate to JoeAnna’s House.

If you like goalies, donate for every game won or every save made, your choice.

Jason is picking Blake Comeau, and will donate $100 for every point.

Katie is picking Alex Kerfoot, and will donate $25 per point.

WE CHALLENGE YOU to get involved and support this great cause. Post your pick on social media, tag Players Choice and two friends to get in on the action.

Let’s Help the Andersons! LIVE Auction

Let’s Help the Andersons! LIVE Auction

Our friend Sean has been a customer for years and we were excited to hear a few months back that his wife Heather, and him were expecting their first… and second babies! The Twins were due this summer but as is often the case, came early.

On May 30th, Finley and Lachlan were born at approximately 3 pounds each. It’s been a battle since with Sean and Heather travelling back and forth to Vancouver between their home and their new family. There have also been some medical complications for the boys – they are fighters but it’s a tough battle.

This Friday night, July 17th, we are proud to be running a LIVE Auction Fundraiser with 100% of the proceeds going to the Anderson Family to help with travel, hotels, added expenses etc. Please join us in helping this Okanagan Family!!  

Sean is parting with some of his collection to get this going – including Gretzky, Orr & Howe Autographs. We’ve had many other generous donations come in – including jerseys, autograph photos, pucks and figures. It’s going to be another great family night for a great cause!

Facebook LIVE Fundraiser for Joeanna’s House

Facebook LIVE Fundraiser for Joeanna’s House

We started Facebook LIVE  auctions from our living room, when we closed our store doors to the public in April. We wanted to create a fun environment for customers and new friends to collect sports cards and interact with us while everyone was collecting from home. We’ve hosted over twenty auctions in the past few months, three times per week and have between 30-40 people watching on Facebook. It’s been a blast and we’ve met many new people! The idea for a fundraiser evolved when someone wanted to donate the card they bought to someone else. 

For the past two years, Players Choice Sports has been a sponsor of the Homebase Baseball Tournament featuring some of our favourite NHL players; raising money for the KGH Foundation’s Project – Joeanna’s House. 

JoeAnna’s House is situated beside the Kelowna General Hospital and provides a home-away-from home to keep families together when they need it most.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19, the baseball tournament has been cancelled but we wanted to continue on with our fundraising efforts and decided to run a Friday night auction and donate 100% of the bids to Joeanna’s House. We hope to raise $3000 during our June 5th Facebook LIVE Auction.
