The University of Manitoba Bison men’s hockey team is doing their part in raising support and awareness for prostate cancer research. The team is participating in the annual Movember event — growing mustaches to support the cause and holding a fundraiser on Saturday prior to their game against the Alberta Golden Bears.
The Bisons — ranked 10th — will host a dinner at Degrees Diner in partnership with Half Pints Brewery on the third floor of University Centre Saturday afternoon. The reception will begin at 4:30 p.m., with dinner served at 5 p.m. Door prizes and a silent auction featuring Winnipeg Jets and Blue Bomber gear will be up for grabs. The three-course meal will be paired with various Half Pints brews, served with local bison. Vegetarian items are available upon request. Tickets are $25 and are available at Answers in University Centre or by calling (204) 995-1197. Proceeds will support prostate cancer research efforts.
Following the chow-down, the Herd will take the ice at Max Bell Arena to face the #5 ranked Golden Bears at 7 p.m. The two teams will go at it again at the same time on Saturday.
