Barb Picken wins signed Connor McDavid Edmonton Oilers jersey in Safeway raffle that raised $16K

Barb Picken, Winnipeg Jets fan, likes Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid.

Picken was the grand prize winner in Canada Safeway’s fundrasier for the Salvation Army Food Bank where every $10 donation or Christmas food hamper bought gave a person a chance to win the autographed hockey sweater along with seven action photos of McDavid inside a large frame.

The prizes were donated by Vernon’s Ken Holland, the Oilers’ president of hockey operations and general manager.

Through the fundraiser, and Safeway operating a 50/50 draw at a Vernon Vipers’ B.C. Hockey League game, a grand total of $16,580 was raised for the Vernon Salvation Army Food Bank.
