Jeff Carlson, Steve Carlson and Dave Hanson, who played the rambunctious Hanson trio in the classic film, will be on hand as the Lower Mainland law enforcement team takes on the Vancouver Police Union squad. Former NHL referee Kerry Fraser will handle the officiating chores.

The game begins at 7 p.m., and tickets are available at iMarktickets.com. A portion of the proceeds will go to Covenant House Vancouver, an organization which provides shelter, food, clothing and counseling for homeless youth.
