An Armstrong gym is offering a chance to win an autographed Los Angeles Kings jersey and help a local organization.

Fitness 2 Life has tickets available at their location on Pleasant Valley Boulevard, at $5 apiece, for a chance to win a jersey signed by the head coach of the Stanley Cup-champion Kings, Darryl Sutter.

“Darryl’s a good friend of mine, I saw him last weekend and he was happy to do this for us,” said raffle organizer Don Raffan of Valley Auction Ltd. fame, and gym member. “Darryl’s really into doing things for charity and he and his family and brothers all love the Okanagan.”

All proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to the Armstrong Ladies Club, a group instrumental in raising funds for local charities involving children.

The money will go to the Ladies Club’s Gift of Hope fund that helps local families whose children are facing life-threatening illnesses or disabilities.

The club is currently helping three Armstrong and area families.

The draw for the signed jersey will be held on Sunday, Dec. 23.
