may13:11On May 6 & 7, 2011, teams took to the ice to play in the 14th Annual Childhood Leukemia Hockey Tournament. Money collected from the sale of draw prize tickets, team entrance fees and donations from our many sponsors (listed below) brought the two-day tournament fundraising total to just over $26,800.

“Every year this event draws a lot of participation and raises a lot of money,” said President Haggerty who came out to watch games on Friday and Saturday. “Thank you to everyone who played in this year’s tournament – you made it a great success and we couldn’t raise this money without your help.”
The players from Fearman’s Pork in Burlington skated away as tournament champions playing a great final game against the runner-up team from UFCW Local 633. After the final game, everyone enjoyed pizza as prizes were handed out for most goals, most valuable player and best goalie.Checkout photos here!
