Retired Leo to speak at Langley Rams fundraising dinner

Proceeds from a March 31 dinner will go to the Jake Gulka Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Two notable names on the local gridiron scene will lend their support to the Langley Rams fundraising dinner March 31.

The junior football team announced that retired BC Lions centre Angus Reid will be the keynote speaker, while Rams alumnus William Loftus will be the special guest speaker at the club’s Supporting Futures Fundraising Dinner.

Over his 13-year career with the Lions, Reid was a member of two Grey Cup-winning teams.

Loftus’s 11-year Canadian Football League career with the Edmonton Eskimos and Montreal Alouettes included Grey Cup wins in 2002 with the Alouettes and in ’05 with the Eskimos.

The Rams note that education is very important to the club, as many of their players attend post-secondary schools and the club tries “to help as many as possible through our scholarship programs – of course the more funds we have the more we can help.”

The dinner is set for Thursday, March 31 at The Redwoods Golf Course, 22011 88th Ave.

Tickets are $100 per plate with dinner provided by The Redwoods.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the dinner at 6 p.m.

Proceeds go to the Jake Gulka Memorial Scholarship Fund.
