MONTPELIER — The American Cancer Society is holding a fundraiser in cooperation with the Norwich University men’s hockey team New Year’s Day. The event, called “Skate for the Cure,” will kick off at the Steak House (Barre-Montpelier Road), who will donate lunch. Then, Richard Swenson, event chair for the American Cancer Society, and comittee members will make a presentation to the Steak House and to the men’s hockey for their community support, Swenson told The Bridge in an email. After the meal and presentation, the team and other attendees will hold the Skate for the Cure event at the Civic Center ice rink on Gallison Hill Road. It will run from 7 to 9 p.m. The team will also spend an hour or more with the community, skating and signing autographs, as well as raffling tickets off for their tournament games and much more, Swenson wrote.
“We have a great team that everyone loves doing good and supporting their community that has stood behind them not just on the ice, but off the ice,” he stated. Details can be found at www.relayforlife.org/centralvt.
