Crime Stoppers Chuck-a-Puck set for January 15th

January is Crime Stoppers month and Lethbridge Crime Stoppers has teamed up with the Lethbridge Hurricanes to give hockey fans a chance to win $30,000!

The Crime Stoppers Chuck-a-Puck contest will take place Friday, January 15, 2016 when the Lethbridge Hurricanes host the Kamloops Blazers.

Crime Stoppers volunteers will be on hand selling pucks on the concourse and the pucks will be chucked during the second intermission of the game. Pucks can be purchased for $5 each or 5 for $20. Fans will have 30 seconds to toss their pucks onto the ice and try and hit the target at centre ice. In order to win, your puck must land completely within the bullseye.

All of the money raised will benefit Lethbridge Crime Stoppers.

Crime Stoppers is a civilian-run, non-profit organization that brings together the police, media and the public. It provides people with a means to anonymously supply police with information about a crime. In return, cash rewards are offered to tipsters whose information leads to an arrest.

Information provided to Crime Stoppers is always anonymous and tips can be submitted by telephone at 1-800-222-8477, text message by texting “tip232” plus your tip to CRIMES (274637) or online at www.tipsubmit.com.
