On October 1st and 2nd Local 288 held its 1st Annual Charity Hockey tournament to benefit our Assistance Fund. The tournament was attended by over 20 teams from Ontario and the United States.
This event was extremely well attended by local agency’s from Fire and Police, and all have expressed a desire to play again with very positive reviews of both the tournament and the city. This was in no way possible without the volunteers who donated their time in various ways to help out the tournamentorganizers. We would like to thank everyone who participated or played, we arevery grateful. Special thanks also goes to Members who covered a shift so players could attend. With your help this tournament was able to exceed our goals and raise over $6000.00!! Without the participation of Local 288 Members this event would have never been possible.
Mark Sept 29-30th in your calendars for next years tounament and we hope to see everyone back on the ice.
Fraternally, Executive Committee
