A 3-1 Saturday night loss for the Ripley Wolves won't dampen the spirit the community showed in raising funds for the Meurs family this past weekend.
The Wolves fired nearly 50 shots at the Shelburne net, but only Cody Britton could find the twine (from Brett Catto), while the Muskies sealed it with an empty netter.
At the same time, over on Facebook, the community at large was ferociously bidding on over 90 silent auction items donated by local families, businesses and members of the hockey world. The auction, which ran from Saturday morning to Sunday evening, raised an incredible amount of money for Jenna, Garrett and Mynden Meurs, as Jenna recovers from a car accident.
If you would like to donate to the family but didn't have a chance to over the weekend, you can eTransfer to meursf[email protected]
or contact a member of the Wolves Executive.
The Ripley Wolves thank all who played a part in our fundraising efforts. Everyone was so quick to offer silent auction items, offer to volunteer at the game, and bid big on so many great prizes. We truly live in an amazing community.
The Wolves return to action on Wednesday, Dec. 29, at 7:30 p.m. in Saugeen Shores.
