Space Coast Blast Sled Hockey would like to thank all our supporters who made donations or shared our posts on #GivingTuesday! Special shout out to Teri Lockman and Wilda Cintron for creating their own Facebook fundraiser for us, and the #GivingTuesday committee: Tripp Skinner, Debra Marrano-Lucas, Anne Skinner, Lee Skinner and Amanda Martori. It truly was a team effort and a great success!!
Check out the #GivingTuesday thank you video from the team:
Space Coast Sled Hockey players brought food and supplies to their first practice to support the Bahamas and their recovery from Hurricane Dorian. These supplies were given to former teammate Gaby and his organization the Bearded Villains of Orlando in support of their donation drive.
On June 23-24, Space Coast Sled Hockey hosted our 5th annual 3v3 cross-ice sled hockey tournament and raffle. 28 teams, 112 players, and 50 games, in two days and total of 8 hours of hockey! We also had over 40 raffle prizes and baskets.
This year there were 8 teams in the very competitive police
and firefighter division, with the Corbett’s of the Orlando Fire Department
defeating the defending champs the Ice holes of Melbourne Fire Department. MFD,
OFD, Brevard County Enforcers, BCSO and Melbourne PD all competed for the cup.
In the friends and family divisions, Team Security made up
of Space Coast Sled Hockey players’ dads and the Mother Puckers made up of
Space Coast Sled players’ moms realized how much harder the sport is than it
looks from the stands. Their games were fun to watch especially when they
played against their kids.
The fundraiser was a huge success, raising over $6,000 and wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our many sponsors and volunteers. Coach Brad Cervi did an amazing job organizing, promoting and running the event, and recruiting teams.
