Putting the happy in happy hour

- May 2nd, 2012

We are just days away from the Hockey Marathon for the Kids.

Starting May 6, 40 players will try to set a world record for the longest hockey game, all while raising $1.5 million for the Alberta Children’s Hosptial Foundation.

You can catch up with all our coverage leading up to the event here.

People can still donate to the cause through the event website, but if you plan on some post-work beers Thursday you can stop in at a handful of local pubs.

Any drink or food sales made between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. at Point and Feather Neighbourhood Pub, Black Bull Pub, Berwick Public House, Kings Head Pub, Kilt and Caber Ale House, as well as the Belfry Gastro House, will be donated to the event. The goal is to raise $10,000 in the hour, said Ab Haymour, owner-operator of Point and Feather Neighbourhood Pub, Black Bull Pub and Berwick Public House.

Short of doing nothing, hoisting a pint for a good cause is a pretty easy task. So raise a glass for people set to leave it all out on the ice.
