Pembina Valley Twisters’ Cancer Care Fundraiser donation of $2,500 to Cancer Care MB

The 10th Annual Pembina Valley Twisters’ Cancer Care Fundraiser was held the weekend of February 2nd.  Rempel Insurance Brokers kicked off the fundraiser by presenting the Pembina Valley Twisters with a $2,500 donation to Cancer Care MB.

Fundraiser was originally inspired by Dale Rempel

The fundraiser was originally inspired by Dale Rempel, the previous owner of Rempel Insurance Brokers. Dale was an avid sports fan and loved the game of hockey – as a player, team owner, and spectator. In 2008 Dale was diagnosed with Brain Cancer. While Dale passed away in 2012, the fundraiser and beloved sport of hockey continue to team up and raise awareness and support for the cause.

The event now includes several hockey teams with the Mud Bugs kicking off the event with a game, silent auction, and 50/50 draw in St. Jean on Thursday, January 31, 2019.
