NHL stars part of charity hockey game to fight autism

Saturday, July 27th

MANCHESTER CENTER, Vt. -- With the sticks taped and the skates laced, the puck dropped on the Second Annual Pro-Am Hockey Fundraiser Saturday night at Riley Rink in Manchester Center

Current players from the NHL, AHL, ECHL, European Leagues and several local DI hockey programs came out for the cause with all proceeds going to benefit the Bennington Autism Task Force and Jonathan Levin Scholarship Fund

Approximately 300 fans attended the 60 minute end-to-end showcase. Much of the dazzling play coming from Washington Capitals Mathieu Perreault and New Jersey Devils Stephen Gionta, who made the trip for the second straight year.

Along with admission tickets, the charity event also held a silent auction, where you could bid on game-worn jerseys and a chuck-a puck. The hope is to reach $10,000 this year, a $3000 increase from last season.
