Hockey 4 Hope Helps Fight Cancer

WNBF News/ Roger Neel Photo

Over three dozen hockey players and dozens of volunteers made the fifth annual Hockey 4 Hope game at the SUNY Broome Ice Rink a big success.  A group of area skaters and officials teamed up on the ice last night to share in the battle against cancer.

Hockey 4 Hope was organized in honor of Constance “Connie” Glauser, the aunt of organizer Brian Laing.  She lost her fight with cancer in May, 2006. Proceeds from the game are donated to the Geller Oncology Fund of Lourdes Hospital.

Numerous businesses donated prizes for raffles and auction.  The event started with the BC Celtic Pipes and Drums performing.

Judy Brown dropped the ceremonial first puck.  Judy lost her husband to cancer last year and Connie Glauser was her sister.

The game, for those keeping score, was won by Southern Tier Pain Management Center.  They defeated Laing Industries, Inc 7-4.  Mike Hoover scored a pair of goals for the winners and Brian Laing notched a pair of goals for his team but the big winners were all of the players and volunteers who teamed together to fight cancer and raise money for the Geller Oncology Fund at Lourdes.  Together they took another step forward in beating this disease..
