Doesn’t is sound refreshing to hear the words ice hockey during these hot summer days? Well tomorrow afternoon there’s hockey action in Plymouth and those attending will help a wonderful cause – Gleaner’s Community Food Bank.
The game is called “Champions For A Hunger Free Summer ’12” and will feature your favorite Plymouth Whalers players. Plus you’ll get to meet them. Just to name a couple of players who will be there, Tyler Seguin of the Boston Bruins will be on the ice along with James Neal from the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Admission at the door at Compuware Arena is $10. Or just bring 10 cans of food to get in.
Your admission money is going to be matched dollar for dollar thanks to the folks at Charter One Foundation. And all proceeds will go directly to Gleaners Community Food Bank to make sure children have proper nutrition this summer when they do not have access to meals at school.
There are more than 315,000 school children home for the summer and the goal is to raise enough money to provide at least 5,000,000 meals this summer. A big task for sure but with your help it’s reachable.
The doors swing open at 2pm. Compuware Arena is located at 14900 Beck Road in Plymouth and the zip is 48170. For more information you can contact them at (734) 453-8400.
