Saint John Sea Dogs Teaming Up With SPCA

The Saint John Sea Dogs will be unveiling their third jersey tonight at Harbour Station against Gatineau, but they will also be helping out the SPCA.

They're asking fans to bring donations for the animal shelter. They're in need of canned cat food, animal bedding pellets for cat litter, peanut butter, cheez whiz, cat collars, leashes, Martingale collars for dogs and high quality doggie treats.

Game time is at 7 o'clock tonight.

Over 50 Trucks & Cars At Long Wharf Today

A new event and fundraiser will be rolling into Saint John today.

"Touch A Truck" will feature over 50 trucks at Long Wharf today, and proceeds go towards First Steps Housing Project which helps young mothers.

First Step's Sharon Amirault tells CHSJ news kids will be able to climb in many of the vehicles, which range from antiques, to construction, and military. Amirault hopes to raise between $10,000-$20,000. 

Tickets are $5 which can be purchased at Harbour Station or at the event. Children under 2 are free. The vent is rain or shine and runs from 10:00-3:00 pm.

Test Drive & Help School Programs

You can take a car for a test drive and Ford will donate $20 for Samuel de Champlain school.

Called "Drive One 4 UR School" program, the fundraiser hopes to raise $6,000 to help pay for sports, arts and technology programming.

Ford sales manager David Brown tells CHSJ news there will be 15 vehicles to test drive at the school.

There will also be a car wash, BBQ and soccer tournament from 9 until 3 today.
