Benefit for Childhood Cancer Research
NEW JERSEY – In their continuing efforts to raise funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer, the New Jersey State Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association (NJFMBA) and the New Jersey State Policeman’s Benevolent Association (NJSPBA) will compete to raise money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). Members of NJFMBA and NJSPBA will face off in a charity hockey game on Saturday, February 4 from 1- 4 p.m. at the Prudential Center, 25 Lafeyette St., Newark NJ 07102.
Last year’s charity hockey event raised $10,000 in one day for ALSF and childhood cancer research. This year, they’re hoping to surpass that with a goal to raise $15,000. Colors will be presented at the game and the national anthem will be sung by a NJFMBA member’s daughter. Local childhood cancer hero families will be in attendance.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for children (ages 7-17) and free for children 7 and under and can be purchased online at www.njfmba.org/charitygame17. Seating is first come, first served so spectators can sit as close to the action as possible. Guests are encouraged to bring their noisemakers to make the noise level rival a Devil’s game!
