IMG_2400On Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10, the 17th Annual Skate for a Cure Hockey Tournament welcomed 12 teams from across the province.

Players included members from Fearmans Pork, Sobeys Milton, Maple Leaf Heritage, Good Humor, Maple Lodge Farms, Zehrs Barrie, Zehrs Windsor, Jadee Meats, Bunge, RCSS Leamington, Rexall Smithville, and Loblaw Head Office.

The team from Fearmans Pork took home the trophy for tournament champs, beating out the Loblaw Head Office team 7 – 4 in the final game.

Each year, the hockey tournament is one of the Local Union’s largest fundraisers for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC). This year was no different. Through the generosity of everyone who played and attended, plus the registration fees from each team, the tournamnet raised $28,302 for much needed funding into blood cancer research and patient care.

Thank you to everyone who made it such a great weekend. We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
