Wellesley Community Center Honors Veteran’s Fund Raiser: American Heroes Hockey Challenge
We recently got a call from a non-profit organization here at the office and the person in charge of setting up the special meeting is Chris Mayer, an attorney by education, who happens to be a local realtor and hockey fan. (She used to live in Minnesota). While discussing the event here in Henderson Hall for an operations meeting on Wednesday evening, February 19 for a special fund raiser for American HeroesHockey Challenge, her magic words were ‘wounded warriors’. This resonated deeply with us and from this point on, she had our undivided attention.
To give the reader a little background, a group of private citizen volunteers is bringing the USA Warriors Ice Hockey Program’s two teams – standing and sled to Boston in April. Events featuring the teams will be held over three days, with the marquee game – the USA Warriors standing team playing Massachusetts area Olympians – set for April 9. Charlie Bobbish, one of the volunteers, will provide an overview of the events at the press conference scheduled for February 18 at 10:00AM at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell. For more information on the big game scheduled for April 9, 2014. The net proceeds of the event will be shared by the USA Warriors, One Fund Boston and the Travis Roy Foundation.
Our challenge to our readers; go to www.americanheroeshockeychalleng.com, learn more about this great event, buy tickets, attend the games, at Tsongas Center, UMass Lowell to help Chris and the other volunteers show the USA Warriors how much we in Wellesley appreciate their sacrifices for us.
