Hockey for a good cause

Hockey for a good cause This year Sheriff Services along with the Police are playing a charity hockey game to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation. This year our goal is to send a boy name Bretton Bannister and his family to Disney.

The date of this event will be March 31, 2012 and will be held at the Bedford BMO Centre on Hammonds Plains Road from 1:30-3:30 pm. This is our winter event and in turn we will be having a summer event as well where the same two teams will play a baseball game to raise money for another Wish Child. Each year we will be doing the same two events to continue our support in this charity.

At our softball game this past September we raised over $11,000.00 for the Make a Wish Foundation and we were able to send two families to Disney World in Orlando. Again we had great help from Gene Simmons, Shannon Tweed, UFC Champion Georges St- Pierre, TJ Grant, Affliction Clothing, West Jet, Sin on Skin Tattooing, and many more great people.

We will also be having media there to cover each event.
