The Burns Lake Braves defeated the Houston Luckies 6-3 during last weekend’s charity fundraiser for the Burns Lake Tragedy Fund.

The Tom Forsyth Memorial Arena was packed to capacity and ticket sales and proceeds from a 50/50 draw brought in approximately $4,000.

The Braves travelled to Houston to play a second game on Saturday, however the Houston Luckies won 7-2. In Houston, ticket sales, a puck toss and a popular paper airplane contest brought in $3700.

Houston Mayor Bill Holmberg dropped the puck for the Houston game, shortly after announcing that Finning Canada had donated a further $10,000 to the Burns Lake Tragedy Fund.
