Join our friends at Southside Ice Arena and 20+ of their home teams for a hockey fights cancer weekend. Southside Ice Arena and Fox Motors Hockey Club are dedicated to the fight against cancer and they’d love your help. Their fundraising plan for Hockey Fights Cancer begins with player pledges/donations, event t-shirts and jersey sales. As a highlight, during the Weekend of Feb. 11-12, 2017 all games played at Southside (including Fox Motors Hockey, Byron Center Varsity, Catholic Central Varsity, and Aquinas College) will be Hockey Fights Cancer games raising awareness and support for Van Andel Institute’s Purple Community. Also during that weekend each Fox Motors team will prepare an item(s) for a raffle auction or silent auction to take place during the multiple games the weekend of Feb. 11-12.
At the pinnacle of Hockey Fights Cancer will be our All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 4:00 where many of our coaches (including Mike Knuble and Travis Richards and multiple other former professional hockey players) will play a charity game against the Fox Motors Midget Minor U16 hockey team (including Mike Knuble’s son – Cameron Knuble). All admissions to this game will be a donation to Purple Community. We will have a one-day only license to sell alcoholic beverages, and will also hold reception featuring a dinner buffet immediately following the game along with open skate. Again, all proceeds benefit Purple Community and will go towards cancer research.
