Plenty of chances to show your Good Deeds support


The Pas Huskies are in the homestretch of an effort to do the ultimate good deed for the community.
The Huskies have been vying for the Good Deeds Cup since first being announced as one of 10 finalists back in early January and since then have progressed to being among the final three teams still battling for the right to hoist the cup. The winner of the cup is slated to be announced on February 26th and it will be based largely on the support the community puts forth and the overall benefit the Good Deeds Cup means to both the community as a whole and the benefiting group.
For the Huskies, the group benefitting from their commitment is Oscar’s Place homeless shelter, which could see as much as $15,000 in funding through the Good Deeds Cup. Each of the three finalists have earned their respective organization $5,000 but the actual Good Deeds Cup champion takes home an additional $10,000 on top of that.
This week the Huskies are taking part in a variety of events to show their community spirit and are asking everyone to take part. This includes taking part in today’s Trappers’ Festival Torchlight Parade where they will not only have a float entered but also will be conducting a food drive with the proceeds going to Oscar’s Place.
On Friday there will be a pair of events held to continue the effort; with a street dance at 1:00 p.m. on Edwards Avenue in front of the Lido Theatre with everyone encouraged to wear their Huskies gear. If you don’t have any Huskies apparel be sure to dress in red in support of the club.
That evening their will also be an OCN Blizzard game with the club also throwing their support behind the Huskies. Once again the call will be on to show your community spirit and wear red for the Huskies.
There is also plenty of opportunity to show your support online through social media. Use of the hashtags #ImWithTheHuskies #GoodDeedsCup along with a post about why you are supporting the effort will also serve to show a panel of judges who are monitoring all activity related to the Good Deeds Cup event just how deserving The Pas and area is to win this award.
