HOMEBASE Charity Slo-Pitch Tournament
The inaugural Gorges Comeau HOMEBASE Charity Slo-Pitch Tournament kicks off on Canada Day long weekend with a Friday night (June 29) celebrity ball game at King‘s Stadium for all families to enjoy. Hosted by hometown hereos, hockey stars Josh Gorges (Buffalo) and Blake Comeau (Colorado), this fun filled weekend will welcome 24 co-ed slo-pitch teams of all levels to compete against an all-star cast of NHL players, including Shea Weber (Montreal), Ryan Johansen (Nashville), Brendan Gallagher (Montreal) & Jordin Tootoo (Chicago), plus another 10 NHL players yet to be revealed.
Games take place throughout the day on Saturday (June 30) at the Mission Sports Fields, culminating in play-offs amongst the top teams per division. Each team plays a minimum of three games. The top three fundraising teams in advance of the tournament will get a guaranteed game versus one of two NHL teams.
Tickets are on sale now for the NHL All-Star Match on Friday, June 29th. This family friendly event is super affordable. Doors open at 4:30pm, autograph signing at 5:00pm, and the game kicks off at 7:00pm. And make sure to stick around and watch Devon Coyote at the after-party.

This annual tournament supports JoeAnna’s House, a home away from home at Kelowna General Hospital for families travelling for care. KGH is the main tertiary referral hospital for the 750,000 citizens across BC’s interior and at any given time 25% of beds are occupied by a patient from outside the Central Okanagan. Help us build JoeAnna’s House and keep families together when they need it the most.
