2016 marks the end of an amazing tournament and community event. While the Face Off Against Breast Cancer Women’s Hockey Tournament has been a huge success in the last few years, it must now come to an end. This very difficult decision has been made after several years of declining committee numbers and levels of commitment in many aspects. As many of you know this amazing fundraising event has relied solely on volunteers and without volunteers we cannot keep going. The planning committee would like to thank everyone who has participated over the last 17 years.
This year’s event raised $56,689, bringing our 17 year tournament total to over $564,729! We would like to thank every single person who has donated to our cause, we have far exceeded our expectations. Additionally we would like to thank all businesses over the years who has donated to our event. These donations have always covered our operating expenses making it possible for all of our fundraised money to go directly to our chosen beneficiary. For most of our 17 years this has been the Cancer Patient Support Foundation, an amazing local organization that distributes money and services directly to local cancer patients.
A very special thank you to all who have helped and made us a success, you know who you are!
