On Aug 22 and 23, 2009 the Checking for Charity hockey organization held a tournament where 8 teams played for charities of their choice. The Hawks played for the Preeclampsia Foundation.

PF was presented with a donation check for 10% of the proceeds raised from the event.

Theresa Fallon won the event’s 50/50 drawing and donated the winnings ($220) to the Preeclampsia Foundation!

TOTAL funds donated to PF = $1220

Thanks to local member, Jen F. and baby Nicholas for attending too. (Great to see you)!

HUGE appreciation to Ed and Kelly Gorleski for their desire to raise awareness about these disorders that negatively affect pregnancies and deliveries, and for raising money to support PF’s work.
Also, thanks to their families, the Hawks team, and the Checking for Charity non-profit organization.

This event is another great example of how members can use their hobbies and social networks in support of the cause. We hope to be part of their future charity efforts!
