The black-and-white game has been an unofficial campaign kick off for a decade or more, where pre-campaign awareness of the United Way campaign, and the monies raised are vital to our overall success, and a key component to our strategy.” “We are proud of our history with the Sarnia Sting organization; each person that has come out to a Black and White game in the past 13 years has made an impact on this community. The donations that we receive will help fund over 30 programs and services in Sarnia-Lambton that have a direct impact on the lives of youth, families and seniors.” Admission is free of charge for the annual Black and White game, however donations upon entry are greatly appreciated . Proceeds from the 50/50 draw, Jersey raffle, and lineup sheet sales going back to the United Way.
