BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — After having a two-year furlough due to COVID-19, “Hockey 4 Hope,” a two-part annual charity event was held tonight at the SUNY Broome Ice Center.
The non-profit organization has been around for 13 years and uses hockey as a theme to organize fun events to benefit others.
The first part of the charity event took place on March 25. Hockey 4 Hope’s “Paint the Ice” night asked families across the community to pay to paint and decorate the ice with messages of love, encouragement and remembrance for those they have lost.
The second is a hockey game that will take place on painted ice on March 26 at 6 p.m. where there will be draws and more.
12 news spoke with Hockey 4 Hope’s Brian Liang about the charity event and his debut.
“Hockey 4 Hope first started as a group of friends getting together, and it grew from a minimal fundraiser to a very successful two-day event over a Friday and Saturday. .”
All proceeds from “Hockey 4 Hope” will benefit the Constance Foundation, which raises funds to help families in need with financial assistance to fight cancer.
