For Immediate Release
VICTORIA, B.C. — All the punny lines come out for this one. It’s the last prize you ever need to win — or people are dying to go to this game.
All the tongue in cheek, macabre lines can rise up once more as the Victoria HarbourCats are proud to again give away an END OF LIFE PACKAGE that includes the basics of a funeral, something the team did a few times prior to the pandemic as well.
Yes, you must be in attendance — and fully alive — to win on that, Wednesday, July 10th, a 6:35pm start when the HarbourCats take on the Dub Sea Fish Sticks. Everyone in attendance can enter to win a prize that also includes a will package and insurance review.
H.W. Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre provides a simple cremation package that includes cremation, casket, urn, transfers, and death certificate, along with a celebration of life and reception venue — a value of more than $4,000.
Mary S. McManus, a barrister/solicitor with Stevenson Doell Law Corporation, provides a will, power of attorney and advanced directive for health care, worth $950 (excluding taxes and disbursements).
Mike Reilly of Gaining Altitude Financial provides a retirement, insurance and critical illness assessment package that will get you to your destination despite life’s turbulence.
“This is an attempt to take a light-hearted approach to a very important topic, bringing more awareness to the importance of having your affairs in order, and if we can do that through a HarbourCats game, that’s great,” said Jim Swanson of the HarbourCats.
“My family has dealt with a lot of loss the last five years, so the needs here really hit home for us. The easier we can make it for our loved ones, the better it is. I’m very thankful for these companies being involved and helping educate people through this special day at Wilson’s Group Stadium at RAP. The day is coming for us all, we’re trying to bring a little bit of levity to that fact of life, and bring awareness.
“We are thankful to Christie Doyle of H.W. Wallace, to Mary McManus, and to Mike Reilly for being involved in this memorable day.”
