Beer and burger with the Generals

Oceanside team busy with events including fundraiser and parents’ weekend

It’s going to be a beer and burger kind of night this Friday as the Save-On-Foods Oceanside Generals host a dinner and fundraiser at the Quality Resort Bayside in Parksville.

The event starts at 5:30 p.m. and tickets are going for $20. There will be a raffle draw, 50/50, trivia, games and lots of prizes to be given away.

You’ll also have the chance to rub elbows, or throw a few, with members of the Generals. Tickets are available at the Quality Bayside Resort or you can e-mail info@oceansidegenerals.com to reserve for the event.

If you can’t get tickets prior to the event, you can buy tickets at the door the night of the event as well.

It’s an all ages event for the entire family and it will coincide with the annual “Parents’ Weekend” that the Generals host, bringing in the parents of team members from across North America.

The Generals are also in the middle of another campaign this month, their Movember campaign, which is raising money to go towards cancer support groups at the Gardens in Qualicum Beach.

The Generals have T-shirts for sale for $20 — with the help of Bruce from Riptide Graphics — at their team office and at their home games as well.
