UPDATE: CHB writers are proud to commit at least $313 to the Canucks for Kids Telethon, comprised of:
- $20 from Clay for 2 Canuck goals.
- $20 from Sean (Clay’s son) for $5 for every Nicklas Jensen point…generously topped up by Arielle Tuliao by another $15.
- $98 from Chris for $44 for Canucks shots (22 x 2). Doubled because of the shutout and another $10 because Chris Tanev is Chris Tanev.
- $30 from Lizz for 30 Eddie Lack saves.
- $25 from Ashley despite Alex Burrows not scoring.
- $20 from Delia for 2 Henrik Sedin points.
- $50 from Victoria for the Alex Edler goal…she was very happy he did something right haha.
- $50 from JJ for the Canuck win
Today is the Canucks for Kids Fund Telethon.
The Canucks for Kids Fund Telethon, presented by Chevrolet, is an annual radio and television telethon. The Canucks for Kids Fund dedicates its resources to assist charities which support children’s health and wellness, foster the development of grassroots hockey and facilitate and encourage education in British Columbia. Last year, the Canucks for Kids Fund granted $2.1 million to support the work of 15 organizations. Over its 28 year history, the Fund has raised more than $43 million for the children and families of our province.
We’re a competitive bunch here at CHB, and we occasionally we like to remind ourselves that we really can do math after all, which is why we’re basing our pledges on Canucks stats tonight.
Clay Imoo: $10 per Canucks goal PLUS: $10 per David Booth assist and $20 per Booth goal.
Lizz Moffat: $1 per Eddie Lack save.
Chris Golden: $2 for every Canucks shot, with a doubling bonus for a shutout. Plus $10 for Chris Tanev being Tanev.

Delia Xenophontos: $10 for every Henrik Sedin point.
Jocelyn Aspa: $1 for each penalty minute awarded to Tom Sestito
