Fundraising for Charlotte

During the Winter Classic Hockey Tournament last month, the teams took the opportunity to do some fundraising on behalf of the sister of one of their hockey players who received a cancer diagnosis just before Christmas.

Through a variety of fundraising initiatives at this hometown hockey tournament, the Millbrook Stars were able to donate $3000 to Charlotte and her family to help offset the expenses of her trips to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto for cancer treatment.

Charlotte is the older sister of a current Millbrook Stars player and in her younger days was a Millbrook Star hockey player herself.  While no longer a player, she has continued to help the organization, most recently in their Halloween Hockey Haunt Tournament for the U11 and U13 teams.

Millbrook Minor Hockey Tournament Convenor Lisa Leszkowicz-Reid wishes to acknowledge the generosity of the community and the visiting teams who contributed to this fundraising effort.
