Jim Henshaw, ECO Night Event Co-ordinator
December 11, 2016
It is with great pleasure that the Victoria Electric Vehicle Club announces its Fourth Annual ECO NIGHT on Friday, January 13, 2017 at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Arena starting at 7:05pm.
Those attending get to see Victoria’s Royals take on their arch-rivals, the Kelowna Rockets. Last year’s final game between these two teams was voted “The Best WHL Game of All Time” and expectations are high for another classic.
EVs on show
But in addition, we’ll be showing off the latest model EVs around the inner concourse and outside the arena. These include the amazing Tesla Model X as well as electric buses, electric motorcycles and displays and presentations from providers of alternative energy, charging systems and local environmental groups.
We’re also bringing back the ever popular parade of EVs on the arena ice.
Prizes and Giveaways … including a Model S for 24 hours
There will be several Eco-friendly giveaways as well, plus free carry bags for the first 2500 guests to arrive. And this year, someone will go home with a certificate to drive and enjoy a Tesla Model S for 24 hours.
This is the VEVC’s prime fundraising event for our ongoing efforts to improve the local environment, increase the adoption of zero emission vehicles and improve the EV infrastructure for Victoria and all of Vancouver Island.
And to assist us further in those efforts the BC Gaming Commission has generously granted us the opportunity to host the night’s 50/50 draw.
We hope you’ll find a way to attend and can bring along friends and family interested in joining the motoring rEVolution.
This year we’ve reserved a block of seats in the Royals exclusive Club section. Prime cushioned seats with access to an exclusive concession area offering special snacks and a wider variety of beverages than can be found in the arena concourse. These seats are available at the greatly discounted price of $22 and can be ordered directly from the Club by contacting Event Co-ordinator Jim Henshaw at (250) 477-2724 or jhenshaw “at” shaw.ca. Payments can be made by cash, cheque, Paypal, Visa or Mastercard. All purchases will be personally delivered.
And if you’d like to buy tickets for friends or business relationships as Holiday gifts, those tickets will arrive at your door gift wrapped.
