wyankin-foundationGet in the holiday giving spirit and come support those who have fought and sacrificed for our country: The Mason Patriots Ice Hockey team will play its annual charity game Dec. 10 for the benefit of the Wyakin Foundation, a nonprofit that supports military veterans.

The Mason Patriots will play the National Capital Region Joint Military Hockey Team in an exhibition game that starts at 1:30 pm at Prince William Ice Center in Woodbridge. Tickets are on sale now for $10 each and can be purchased from any member of the hockey team or coaching staff or by emailing All proceeds will go to the Wyakin Foundation.

After winning the BRHC Colonial Division Championship at the end of last season for the first time in the history of the program, the George Mason Patriots have had an impressively strong start to the 2016-2017 season. Despite moving up to play in a more challenging conference, they’ve posted a 10-2-1-1 record in their first 14 games and are ranked 10th in the ACHA Men’s Division III Atlantic Region – the highest ranking in recent school history.

The NCR Joint Military Hockey Team is part of the nonprofit Armed Services Association and a member of the Public Service Hockey League. The team is open to all active duty, reserve, retired, and former military members of the United States Armed Forces in the Washington, DC, area.

The Wyakin Foundation serves as a conduit to connect military veterans to successful futures. The Foundation provides mentoring, professional development, academic guidance, and the financial support that puts veterans in a position to achieve success as students, community members, and ultimately, leaders in business, industry, and society. In 2015, over 80% of every dollar donated went directly to the foundation’s veteran support programs. Learn more at
