Trail hockey team and community come together for Enns

This year's annual Rossland Round-Up Charitable Hockey tournament focused on a local resident as the main recipient of charitable funds.

On a beautiful summer day in June 2013, Carol Enns experienced devastating injuries in a motor vehicle accident involving a drunk driver north of Colville, WA.

Enns was a long-time member of the Smokette’s women’s hockey team, and living the physically active life that so many of us enjoy in the Kootenays.

In February, the Smokette’s held their annual Rossland Round-Up Charitable Hockey tournament.  To support our teammate, the Smokette’s focused on Carol as our main recipient of charitable funds from the tournament.

On Oct. 30, the  team presented Carol with a cheque for $4426.00.  The Smokette’s would like to thank their direct sponsors: Teck Metals, Nelson and District Credit Union, and Kootenay Savings Credit Union, along with all the local businesses in Rossland and Trail that provided donations for door prizes and raffles, and helped the Smokette’s make a difference in our community again this year.
