Score one for the boys in red.
The game packed the stands at the Summit Centre Arena, but the real winners were Archway Food Bank and the Salvation Army in Abbotsford.
Attendance for the game was free, but spectators were encouraged to donate food, clothing and cash.
The event collected 10 bags of new and used clothing, an overflowed donation bin full of food and $1,035. The clothes will be donated to the Salvation Army, while the food and money will go directly to Archway.
APD Chief Constable Mike Serr also made good on his friendly wager with Fire Chief Don Beer, donating the promised $50 to the Abbotsford Food Bank after his team lost.
Well I am sorry to say Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service @iaff2864 beat @AbbyPoliceDept last night. A great cause raising money & collecting food for @AbbyFoodBank. I made my donation tonight Chief Beer. Looking forward to the rematch. https://t.co/8vCNJSwdlj
