Why attend this event?364249_raw
The best part of the event this year is that our current ice hockey team is playing our Mason Alumni team. This is always a big event during the season and marks the 4th year of the fundraiser. When asked why they participate each year coach Steve Hyjek said “It is a part of our program to do some community outreach and elevate the visibility of our program on campus, it is something that is important to us, this is an opportunity for us to take some of the skills that we have in life and some of the love that we have for the sport of hockey and use that to benefit others.” Last year they raised over $16,000! Help Club Ice Hockey achieve their goals this year by coming out and supporting this great cause!
