Pacific FC fans dipped into their wallets and the dunk tank to raise money for Help Fill a Dream Sunday (Sept. 18.)

The Langford-based club was raising money for the charity via a variety of activities. They included a dunk tank, a photo booth, balloon animals and 50/50 tickets.

Several children involved in Help Fill A Dream programs also served as player ambassadors, ball kids, and honorary captains on the day, with Oliver Lotan getting to fulfil his dream of singing the national anthem on the pitch.

Five dollars from each ticket sold for the game went to Help Fill A Dream.

Help Fill a Dream was started by a BC Transit worker in 1986, to help families whose kids have been diagnosed with a serious medical condition.

The funding provides financial support to families, as well as medical equipment, home and vehicle accessibility modifications, travel expenses and accommodation.
