100 Mile Wranglers fans turned out in droves Saturday for a drive-thru BBQ fundraiser, scoring $2,650 for the local club.

The event, held at the South Cariboo Rec Centre, was the first drive-thru of the year for the hockey team, which hopes to resume play this fall after sitting on the sidelines all season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bruce Madu, a director on the Wranglers’ board, said a lot of the participants who came out Saturday were Wrangler season ticket holders. “They’re all just dying for hockey,” he said.

Lorne Doerkson, the MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin who was responsible for flipping the burgers, said the turnout was amazing.

“I know it’s challenging times but that’s what constitutes an outing these days,” he said. “We saw around 200 people and they gave very kindly.”
