Don Cameron Potato Night this Friday
The 15th annual Don Cameron Potato Night is coming up at this Friday’s Kitchener Rangers game.
The Rangers welcome the Owen Sound Attack.
Fans are encouraged to bring along a sack of potatoes to support the House of Friendship’s annual February Potato Blitz.
House of Friendship Executive Director, John Neufeld tells 570 News where those potatoes go, “most of the spuds will be taken to our emergency food hamper program where they will be distributed to people in crisis who are needing food.”
Don Cameron really hands it to the House of Friendship for all of their community work, “they have 19 different programs that they run in the course of the year. Many of them involve food, and with food come potatoes, and they need approximately
200,000 lbs of potatoes to run their programs every year,” Cameron said.
Last year, Ranger fans brought over 4,700 lbs of spuds to the game.
