NEW GLASGOW – With Play the Pros just over a week away they have announced Zach Sill, James Sheppard, Andrew Bodnarchuk and Brad Marchand will be in attendance.

Local pros that will also be taking part include: Colin White, Jon Sim, Derrick Walser, Joey MacDonald and Dave MacIntyre.

The event will consist of a skills competition and the pros playing two games with novice and atom age players. Space is still available for the both games. Applications are available at the YMCA of Pictou County, with a cost of $100 per child.

Admission to the games is free, but donations will be accepted at the door.

After the game a meet and greet will be held upstairs in the Wellness Centre, with an auction and later a comedian performing on stage. Admission is $20 to this portion of the evening. Individuals must be 19 years or older to attend.

All proceeds raised will help assist children playing hockey in Pictou County.
