Wear a Hat for $1 – This Friday
Last weekend on February 10, the BC Hockey Team participated in a game benefitting The Van Andel Institute's Purple Community. The team will be skated in honor of or in memory of someone affected by cancer. Last year, we participated in a district wide "Wear a Hat for $1 Day" and all of the money was donated to Purple Community from Byron Center Hockey and Byron Center Public Schools.
Due to the snow day on February 9, Wear a Hat has been rescheduled to tomorrow February 16. We encourage all BC Students to Wear a Hat for $1 with proceeds going directly towards Purple Community. Hockey team representatives will be at the doors in the morning of the 16th to collect $1 from students as they enter school. Thank you for your support.
