It’s July, so you’re probably not getting your FDA-recommended 30 hours of hockey per week. That’s bad, but friend-of-the-blog Eric Rigsby has a way to get your recommended summertime hockey and help out a worthy cause.
This weekend at Skate Frederick, the 2014 Old Fat Bald Guys Hockey Tournament and Silent Auction will be held, and yes that’s the actual name. There will be a bunch of Caps and Bears memorabilia available, as well as ticket packages to pro and college games. And all the proceeds go to The Fisher House Foundation, a fantastic charity that provides housing and travel to military families while their loved ones get treatment.
Details are below. If you can’t attend, please help spread the word– especially if you or your friends are in the Frederick area.
When: July 18-20, 2014. The silent auction will be held all day on Saturday the 19th– ending around 6:30 pm. The pig roast starts at 7 pm.
What: Hockey tournament, charity auction, pig roast and tailgate. Wait, really? A pig roast? I’m so there.
Why: In memory of Tony Johnson, USMC, and to benefit the Fisher House Foundation. Fisher House has helped 22,000 needy military families in last year alone. Charity Navigator ranked Fisher House a four-star charity, so they’re upstanding and pretty baller. A worthy cause.
Who: Friends, family, hockey fans, YOU.
Here’s a partial list of stuff that will be up for auction:
I think it would be appropriate if we help drive the price up on that Brooks Orpik hat.
Here’s the game schedule:
Again: Hope to see you there. If you can’t make it, please spread the word with a retweet or a Facebook share or something. It’s for a good cause.
