Kylemore Kares Supports Hockey Helps The Homeless York Region
More than 245 players, 27 retired pros, almost 100 volunteers, 40 sponsors and more than 2,200 donors came together recently to help the homeless in York Region. As a result, Hockey Helps the Homeless (HHtH) York Region was able to grant more than $200,000 to its partner beneficiaries.
Kylemore Communities was one of 24 teams entered to play in York Region at this year’s Hockey Helps the Homeless Tournament held in Markham. Registered teams were assigned one or two former professional players, taking to the ice for three games during the day-long tournament held at Angus Glen Community Centre and Centennial Community Centre.
“It’s such an important event to raise awareness for the plight of people who are homeless and the charities that support them,” says Frank Spaziani, Kylemore’s vice-president and team captain. “Congratulations to the organizers for such a well-run and fun event. With the annual support of our consultants, trades and suppliers, Kylemore has been a donor to Hockey Helps the Homeless for many years.”
