The ninth annual LAPA Gala fundraiser runs March 3th at the Lacombe Memorial Centre

The Lacombe Athletic Park Association is pleased to announce 2017 CFL all-star, 2017 QB sack leader and two-time Grey Cup Champion Charleston Hughes will be on hand on March 3th at the Lacombe Memorial Centre for the ninth annual LAPA Gala Fundraiser.

Always a fan-favourite, Hughes finished the 2017 CFL season with 11 sacks and a total of 99 career sacks tying him with Will Johnson for the all-time leader with the Calgary Stampeders.

Most recently Hughes became the newest member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

“Hughes will join fellow celebrities Adarius Bowman, Gilbert Dionne, and Gord Bamford for the most fun night in Lacombe all year.” Single tickets start at $100 each or $750 for a table of eight including GST.
