On Jan. 6, 2023, Innisfail RCMP and Innisfail Fire hosted the first annual battle of the badges charity hockey game. The game was well attended by hundreds of people and the seating at the arena was at capacity. The game was a hard fought battle with the RCMP coming out on top 15 to 10.
The event wouldn't have been possibly without volunteers including Rhonda Turnquist with the Town of Innisfail and the Calgary Flames Alumni. The Flames alumni not only supplied players and Flames alumni swag but also donated $2,500 to the Innisfail food bank.
In total, the game raised 1487lbs of food and $6,038 in cash for the Innisfail food bank.
The Innisfail RCMP and Fire Department are looking forward to putting on the event in the future.
