Wednesday is the final day for residents to vote for the Cape Breton County Islanders under-13 'A' team in the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup.
The Good Deeds Cup is an initiative for minor hockey teams across the country to find good ideas that would have a significant impact on their communities. The winner will take home $100,000 for their registered charity.
The Islanders are one of 11 regional finalists and are representing Nova Scotia in the national contest.
The team has selected the Cape Breton Down Syndrome Society as its charity of choice and pitched the idea of inclusion known as the Joey Moss Project, in memory of the late Edmonton Oilers dressing room attendant Joey Moss.
Online voting will close at 11:59 p.m. today with three teams moving on to the final. The clubs will be notified of the results on or before Sunday.
Residents can vote by visiting chevrolet.ca/en/good-deeds-cup. Once on the site, click “Vote Now” under the Cape Breton County Islanders team picture.
In 2017, the Glace Bay Miners under-13 ‘A’ team was crowned the Good Deeds Cup champions after the club organized a Valentine’s Day celebration for 67 residents of Taigh Na Mara continuing care home in Glace Bay.
