On Saturday, August 12th at 5pm we are having our 5th Annual Celebrity Charity Hockey Game to benefit the Las Vegas Firefighters Youth Hockey Foundation. Last year, we were able to assist the Peyton family with medical expenses for their son Wesley who passed away from leukemia a few days prior to the game. We also were able to provide several families with scholarships including full tuition for two 16 year old boys who will be playing in the game this year!
The game includes active NHL players including our very own Las Vegas Golden Knight Deryk Engelland and Las Vegas native Jason Zucker (Minnesota Wild) with alumni such as George Parros (Anaheim) from the NHL and ECHL. Additionally, local hockey community leaders Gabe Gauthier (Nevada Storm, Director) and Anthony Greener (UNLV Hockey Coach) will also be participating. Local firefighters from the area departments will be skating as well for a fun evening of hockey for a great cause.
Raffle prizes and a live auction will be held between periods and items include autographed jerseys and sticks used in the game as well as Las Vegas Firefighter memorabilia. Attached is the graphic for this years game and a one sheet about the foundation.
Again, the game is on August 12th, 2017 5:00 pm at the Fiesta Rancho Ice Arena.
