A most generous grudge match

- March 20, 2017

Who won the 2017 Residence Charity Face-Off hockey showdown?

The scoreboard said the Bighorns (Risley, Shirreff and LeMarchant Place) prevailed over the Trojans (Howe Hall, Gerard Hall and Mini-Rez) with a score of 4-2. But as is the case every year, the real winners were patients and families at the IWK Health Centre.

Residence students raised $13,000 for the IWK Foundation in the lead-up to the game, which took place on Saturday, March 11. This was the 12th year for the annual event, which to-date has raised a total of $189,000 for the foundation. Organizers hope to reach the $200,000 mark, appropriately, in Dal's 200th anniversary year next year.
