The fans filled the stands as the Big N' Lil' Kids game took to the ice for the Kraft Cup on Sunday February 11.

Melissa Pryor, one of the organizers says the last number of weeks have been busy trying to get this to come together.

"We're really excited because the last four weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind just trying to get the community on board. And we have one-hundred-thirty-plus stories submitted to Kraft Hockeyville and there's a good turnout today for our Kraft Cup."

The Bob Snodgrass Recreation Complex was the scene as the push for High River to make it to the finals of the Kraft Hockeyville contest continues.

From MP John Barlow to the High River Flyers to the High River Fire Department and everyone else in between participated in the event designed to showcase High River's love for not just hockey but their community.

Non-perishable food items got you into the game to support the food bank and organizer Melissa Pryor couldn't be happier.

"The food bank donations have been amazing. Because we're offering this as a free event we just wanted the community to come together. It's really nice to see the community come together and support the food bank and support what we're trying to do."

Pryor expects to hear positive results back from Kraft on St. Patricks Day.

"I expect and anticipate that we will receive notice of being in the top four on March 17th. So, Saturday March 17th, St. Paddy's Day, that is when Kraft Hockeyville will announce the top four."

The prize for making it to the top four towns is $25,000 while the grand prize is hosting an NHL pre-season game and $250,000 in arena upgrades.
