Valley Gurls raises $2,500-plus for Comox Valley Kickers Rugby Club

Valley Gurls – a fundraiser for the Comox Valley Kickers Rugby Club — featured the best queens of Vancouver Island: Victoria’s Sinder Star, Nanaimo’s Divine Intervention and Comox Valley’s very own Amanda Luv.

The queens sashayed and slayed in front of a sold-out crowd at the Cumberland Hotel on Saturday, Nov. 16. The event raised over $2,500 which will go towards travel and equipment costs for the upcoming rugby season, which starts again in mid-January.

“The support we’ve received from the community has been amazing,” said Jenn Lund, Kickers vice-president. “The event sold out early. The crowd was great, and it was a very interactive show. We had our sponsor, Vancouver Island Brewing beers on tap, awesome door prizes, including gift certificates donated by the Cumberland Hotel and a 50/50 draw. This was the first time we’ve organized an event like this, and it definitely won’t be the last.”

The Kickers prepared a shuttle service so people could enjoy the night responsibly. Non-perishable food donations were gathered for the Comox Valley Food Bank.

The Kickers men’s and women’s teams are recruiting players for the upcoming season. Everyone welcomed. No experience needed. For more information, visit or email
