Face Off for Mental Health
Once again, all local hockey associations have partnered with St. Clair Child and Youth Services to raise awareness and decrease the stigma associated with mental health.     

During the month of November, we will be participating in “Face off for Mental Health”.  Each player will be provided with green tape to use for the month.  This visual cue will help us raise awareness at our home and away games, tournaments and on social media.  The Sarnia Sting are hosting a “Mental Health Awareness” game on Sunday, November 17th.  Please consider attending the game!  Ticket pricing is reduced to $14.00 and “chuck a puck” is available ahead of time if you are not able to attend the game.  Your participation is of course – voluntary and appreciated.   We welcome parent and youth representatives to join us in our efforts to make the Face Off successful.  One in five children struggles with mental health issues but five in five are impacted.  Please contact Liz Page if you are interested in assisting with this initiative and supporting our efforts.

Jackpot Time, formally known as Jackpot City and Bingo Country, has been serving up gaming in the city of Sarnia for more than 30 years, and has raised over $15 million dollars for regional charities. Jackpot Time is in the business of continuing that proud tradition, while providing a full-service entertainment experience that's relevant to our community today. In partnership with OLG, we have dramatically overhauled the gaming floor, adding a fully licensed diner, a sports lounge, and a selection of electronic gaming machines.
