The 2013 National Hockey League Alumni Challenge for a Cure proved that incredible things can happen when a group of people gather for a common cause. A total of 12 NHL Alumni returned to the ice on April 6 at the Klick Lewis Arena in Annville, Lebanon County, to partner with local hockey players in a 6-game showdown.
The event also included a draft party meet and greet, a “Little Dudes” game for youth, and a multitude of silent auction items and raffle prizes. From the time the first puck dropped until the skates were hung up–it was an all-around great day for everyone. Special thanks to the sponsors, including Emerald Foundation, Enviroman Products, Gannett Flaming, the Gas Station, Jonestown Bank, and Naidu Hand Specialists, along with the participants, NHL Alumni and especially Jon Jehrio for all of his hard work to bring this event to life. Totals are still being tallied, stay tuned to our website to see the final amount raised. Congratulations to everyone involved and a big thank you for the support. The PBCC is able to offer our services and resources to women in PA battling breast cancer because of events like this!
