  • by

Congratulations to everyone who walked away with a prize! Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and our players, we managed to raise over $3,300 for the BC Children’s Hospital! It’s not too late to help raise that total – donations of any amount are appreciated! (Donations of $50 or more under Hilton will earn a $20 CAD credit to Valdus.ca’s Etsy store, which will soon have a larger inventory of stuff to choose from).
