"Checking for Charity"
August 22 and 23
Flyers Skate Zone
Voorhees, New Jersey
An organization of adult hockey players (Ã¢â‚¬Å“Checking for CharityÃ¢â‚¬Â) is hosting a local hockey tournament! Ed Gorleski is part of the team representing the Preeclampsia Foundation. He is playing in memory of his daughter who was born and passed in April related to his wifeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s experience with HELLP Syndrome.
All of the money raised through team entrance fees, sales during the tournament and from other donations are going into a single pot of money. The winner of the tournament gets the biggest cut of money donated to their charity, but all of the charities represented will receive funds from the pot according to their team's final placement.
I'll be going...and would love to meet up with any local members. If you live in the area, stop by the Flyers Skate Zone and watch the Ã¢â‚¬Å“HawksÃ¢â‚¬Â play for the Preeclampsia Foundation. Visit our info table where awareness materials will be on hand and additional donations will be collected.
Special thanks to Ed, his wife, Checking for Charity, and the players and donors participating is the event!
We will post results following the tourney.
