The Allen Lafleur Tournament of Hope will take place for another year this weekend in Taylor. The “red eye” tournament will begin Friday evening and carry on all the way through Sunday afternoon.

Thirty two teams will be taking part in the event which raises funds for the ongoing battle against cancer.


A number of silent auction prizes will be up for grabs including six VIP tickets to see the BC Lions and Edmonton Eskimos tangle at Commonwealth Stadium on September 26 at 2 p.m. The package also includes a catered lunch, and 10 per cent merchandise from the Eskimos team store.

Also available for auction will be two tickets to see Kelly Clarkson at the EnCana Events Centre in October, and a propane fire pit, among other items.

The finals of the event are slated for 4 p.m. on Sunday.
