A local family is keeping the memory of their grandpa alive by organizing a ball hockey tournament and cabaret.

“The first annual Joe Pires Memorial Ball Hockey Tournament and Cabaret will take place on July 9 at the Sparwood Arena,” said Jenn Casselman, a granddaughter to Pires.

“We are really excited to host our first tournament and so far we already have eight teams of 10. There is sure to be a little bit of competition and a lot of fun,” she said.

After the tournament is  finished the family have organized a cabaret. The Cabaret is open to the public ages 19 and older. Tickets for the cabaret are $10 and can be purchased at Alayna’s Hair Salon in Sparwood as well as Hempire and Mountain View Dental in Fernie.

The cabaret will be hosted by a DJ who is excited and ready to have some fun for such a great cause.

“We also have an ongoing progressive 50/50. We encourage everyone to come out and support a great cause and most of all have some fun,” said Casselman. “We hope to see you there!”

All proceeds to this event will be donated to the Cancer Society. If you have any questions or would like to join in on the fun please contact Jenn at 403-634-8700.
