It’s a battle of the sexes, but it’s all for a great cause.
For the second year, We Are Creative Inc. and Sports Marketing All-Stars are bringing the Faceoff to Fight Cervical Cancer to Bolton arena, coming Saturday.
The event raises money and awareness for TEALPOWER, a cervical cancer charity organization.
“Last year, with the support of our local businesses and community, we were able to raise over $5,700 in our inaugural event,” said Steve Conforti of We Are Creative. “This year we are aiming higher.”
Fans will get to witness some of the top female hockey talent in the country, as the Canadian Women’s Hockey League’s Brampton Thunder will look to avenge their loss last year to the Sunday Night Hockey League All Stars, a men’s league based in Caledon for more than 30 years.
The Thunder bring with them some impressive names, including CWHL Rookie of the Year Laura Stacy and CWHL scoring champion Jess Jones.
Not to mention, Bolton’s own Rebecca Vint, who joined the Thunder in 2015 after a four-year stint with the NCAA’s Robert Morris University.
After the game, fans can also catch the SNHL’s Callaghan Cup Championship and End of Season Celebration, sponsored by Pommies Cider and Caledon Hills Brewing.
Door prizes and raffle prizes will also be available. The action begins at 7 p.m.
Tickets are now on sale for the event, with prices set at $10 for adults, $5 for kids aged three to 10, and free for kids under three years of age. Tickets are also available in person at the We Are Creative office, at 26 McEwan Dr. in Bolton.
