HarbourCats and Flight Centre Give Special Fans the Trip of a LifetimeBy Chris April 14, 2019 11:14am
VICTORIA, B.C. — This may be the most touching story you’ve heard in awhile, and it’s all because of Flight Centre and a promotion at Wilson’s Group Stadium at RAP — and proof that karma does, in fact, exist. HarbourCats and Flight Centre Give Special Fans the Trip of a Lifetime
It’s almost impossible to believe, in fact.
In 2018, the Victoria HarbourCats and Flight Centre teamed up (for a second time) on a promotion that saw someone win a trip-for-two to Las Vegas. The name drawn from the box was Jody Price of Coquitlam.
“In a perfect world, of course, we go into those draws kinda-sorta hoping that one of our many great season ticket holders or sponsors wins,” said Jim Swanson, GM and Managing Partner of the HarbourCats. “We weren’t at all prepared for what came next when Jody’s name was drawn. If anyone needed a trip like this, it was Jody — and his wife, Erin.”
Read on. Grab tissue.
Jody came to one game, Father’s Day. In the midst of fighting cancer and dealing with harsh treatments, he ventured to Victoria and took his dad to a ball game. He bought a program, filled out the form, entered. And won.
If ever there was karma, this is it. No one could use the trip more. But it didn’t stop there.
Unable to travel, Jody put the trip on hold for when he’d be stronger. While delaying, the couple — who celebrated their ninth anniversary in August — was hit with more news. Erin was diagnosed with kidney cancer.
Well, we have great news — Flight Centre was able to finally send them off to their Vegas getaway TODAY (Sunday, April 14th), as they are winning the battle and gaining strength. No one has ever needed, or been more eager, to get away for a few days. DeeDee Sixto and Carey Shelby from Flight Centre completed plans, and they are Vegas bound.
“We know all our fans and staff hope they have the trip of a lifetime, and we’re so impressed with Flight Centre through all this,” said Swanson. “Karma shines down on Jody and Erin with this Vegas trip.”
“We are booked and very excited about the upcoming trip,” said Jody and Erin a few days prior to their departure. “We want to thank the HarbourCats and Flight Centre for this amazing opportunity.”
The HarbourCats and Flight Centre have teamed up again on another travel prize for the 2019 season. Everyone who purchases our game day program ($2) and fills out the Flight Centre program form, all season long, and enters the draw will have a chance to win a $1,000 travel credit — to go to Vegas, or anywhere else they wish.
The season starts June 1, at Wilson’s Group Stadium at RAP, running through mid-August — and we hope to see Jody and Erin back for a game (or two!).
