Hundreds gathered at the SUNY Broome Ice Center tonight for a hockey game raising money to help those with cancer.
The 5th annual Hockey 4 Hope charity hockey game was founded in memory of Constance "Connie" Glauser who passed away of breast cancer in 2006. Her nephew started the charity game in honor of her, and to raise money to support families who have someone going through cancer treatments. Organizers say they hope to raise around 11 thousand dollars today, but that it's not all about the money.
"To me, it doesn't matter how much we donate. We have such a great group of people that come out and help out. You can look out there and we've got three guys out there skating right now that were very close to losing their life to cancer. And just being able to see them out there and having fun and having everyone in the crowd be there. That's what it's all about," said Brian Laing, found of Hockey 4 Hope.
Nearly 400 people came out to tonight's event. All proceeds from the event go to benefit the Geller Oncology Fund.
