PACK the YACK! For Blessings in a Backpack!

Are you a diehard hockey fan?  If you understand the lingo in the paragraph below then you are a FAN!  

"Come on down to the barn, November 17, 2013 to see a gongshow of a game! Where our Wyandotte Alumni team will be putting on the mustard against Red Wing Alumni to shoot the biscuit between the pipes with lots of lasers! Hopefully, no chirp or chicklets will be flying - Just good old- fashioned fun to light the lamp as much as we can and have a celly!"

Did you get any of that?  You did? Awesome. You are a super-fan!   No? (me neither)  Join us anyway!  All for a good cause.  

On Sunday, November 17, 2013 the puck will drop between the Red Wing Alumni and local Wyandotte Alumni players in a Charity Hockey Game to benefit the important work of Blessings in a Backpack - Wyandotte.   Come see your favorite Red Wing alumni players face off against the ready-to-win Wyandotte team!   If you recognize any of the following local players, come cheer them on!

Chad Bonmon, Kevin Butler, Matt Siewniak, Paul Ciaravino, Brian Cotner, Adam DeSana, Barry Goudy, Bob Hensley, Tony Jesue, David Knight, Steve Kovalchik, Ken Laub, Chris Laura, Joe Lozowski, Joe Mayhew, Josh Morrison, Joe Peterson, Joe Quint, Mike Quint, Jeremy Sladovnik, Joe Stanley, Pat Sutka, Jeff Tessier and William Zunich. 
We'll have lots of fun-filled activities for the entire family including "Chuck-A-Puck", 50/50 raffle, silent auction and much more!

Blessings in a Backpack provides school-age children who have food insecurities with a backpack containing enough food to provide six meals during the weekend. Each week backpacks are distributed to the children and they return the backpacks on Monday, to be refilled for the following Friday.  Backpacks contain such foods as tuna, peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, oatmeal, fruit juices, fruit granola bars, soup, and ravioli.

WE NEED YOUR HELP to make this event successful and keep our program running. This charity hockey game will help to raise awareness of childhood hunger and money to support the Blessings in a Backpack program for children in Wyandotte. 

So come enjoy a fun night of hockey with your family and friends. You'll have a great time while supporting a great cause!

Sounds like a fun time and a great way to help a wonderful program! Does anyone know which Red Wings alumni will be there??
ALF November 02, 2013 at 03:11 PM
Hi Denise! We do not have a confirmed list as of yet from the Red Wing team. We DO know that Red Wing Hall of Fame player, Dino Ciccarelli will be there. The Red Wing Alumni Association website has a roster of players and will use alumni off that list. We'll post as soon as we know. Stay Tuned and thank you for your interest!

Hi Wendy and thank you for your interest! Yes, if there are tickets still available, we will sell them at the doors of the Yack Arena the day of the game. Hope to see you there.
