Hanson Brothers back for another round of hockey

Posted By on May 4th, 2011 at 2:06 pm | 38 comments.

The movie Mystery; Alaska told the story of a hockey publicity stunt which brought the New York Rangers to a small rural town for an exhibition game. On May 14, hockey fans will get a taste of the NHL and Hollywood — when three stars from the movie “SLAP SHOT” return to Harrisburg to raise money for the PA Breast Cancer Coalition (PBCC).

“Paint the Rink Pink” — featuring the Hanson Brothers is scheduled for Saturday, May 14 at 5 p.m. at Twin Ponds East on Corey Road in Harrisburg. The event will feature the original Hanson Brothers from the 1977 movie Slap Shot playing with the Red Robin Robin’s and Team Full Circle Copiers. The Hanson Brothers have already helped to raise over $41,000 for the PBCC. The trio will wear their famous Charlestown Chiefs uniforms — complete with their signature black glasses. The game will also feature the use of pink pucks and a pink themed arena. At the First Intermission, the Hanson’s will play in the En-Kay Sporting Goods Little Dudes Game — which will introduce area youth to old time hockey.

According to Rob Ziemba, Founder of “Play It Againfor Charity, “We have created our own Hanson Brothers Booster Club right here in Central PA. It’s been a lot of fun giving hockey fans the opportunity to meet three stars from the greatest sports movie ever! The Hanson’s are great with the fans and many fans return each year to see them. It’s going to be another fun exhibition hockey game for all.”

Tickets for the event are $5.00 each and it’s suggested be purchased in advance. Fans can order tickets by mail — by sending a check or money order — payable to: Play It Again for Charity, P.O. Box 272, Campbelltown, PA 17010. Tickets will also be available at the door.

Fans with paid admission will have the opportunity to meet and greet the Hanson Brothers in the lobby during the Third Period.  8 x 10 Hanson Brothers Photos will be available for $10.00 each and can be autographed for free.

Come join the fun on May 14th and enjoy the Hanson Brothers’ “on-and-off-ice” antics. There will be many hockey prize raffles, music, food and Puck Hog Hockey Pro Shop will offer specials on equipment. Interested fans can visit: www.slapshot2.org for more information.
