On Sept. 15, the second annual Legends and Stars charity match will return before the Vancouver Whitecaps’ game against the Seattle Sounders.

Whitecaps FC alumni will be joined by celebrity guests – including Steveston-filmed OUAT’s Colin O’Donoghue, who plays Hook, and Chris Gauthier, who plays Smee. All funds raised from the match will be given to BC Children’s Hospital.

Other stars include several actors from Riverdale, The 100, iZombie, Letterkenny and even three-time Olympic medalist Patrick Chan.

The Legends and Stars charity match begins at 4:45 p.m. Tickets are $5, but require a ticket to the Whitecaps’ game afterwards.
