Hockey game and social to remember Kirk Holifield, support KidSport Delta

Friends and family will join again to remember Kirk Holifield this weekend at the annual memorial hockey game and after-party social.

Holifield died tragically in 2007, but his memory lives on through the fun, charity game now marking its 12th year.

The game will be held Saturday, Feb. 15 at Planet Ice starting at 5 p.m. Following the game, the after-party will be held at The Landing Pub in Ladner starting at 7 p.m.

The after-party will feature raffles, a 50/50 draw and a chance to share stories and memories of Kirk amongst family, friends and community members.

Proceeds from the game and after-party will go to support KidSport Delta, which has been the benefactor for the past five years. Close to $15,000 has been donated to KidSport in that time.

KidSport Delta provides grants to financially disadvantaged children to cover the costs of sport registration fees.

Kirk’s parents, Bert and Michelle, along with Michelle’s sister Sandra McLeod are organizing the fundraising after-party social.

The Landing Pub was a place Kirk often frequented. A couple of years prior to his death, Kirk had a birthday party at The Landing Pub and requested that instead of gifts his friends donate to KidSport.

“Everyone is getting a bit older, but the guys just love coming out and putting on the game,” said Michelle. “It’s always a fun day and we all love everyone who comes out to support and remembers Kirk. We’re looking forward to it and the guys are too.”
