Hockey for a cause

The Northern Hockey Lads (NHL) held a fundraiser hockey game on Dec. 29, 2018 at the Claude Parish Memorial Arena in Houston. The Northern Hockey Lads challenged the Houston Luckies Alumni to a fun and entertaining game. The Houston Luckies Alumni team won 7 to 3. This fundraising event is to support the NHL in their upcoming 2019 trip to Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, and Lapland/Finland. The Northern Hockey Lads go overseas on an outreach program coaching youth hockey, playing many mens teams,visiting schools and social care facilities. They also interact extensively with local sports, businesses, education and religious entities. It is a meaningful and exciting high-profile international adventure for all participants. James Makowichuk, organizer for the Houston game said, “It was a great turn and out and we appreciate everyone who helped organize the game, we raised $1155, there were approximately 200 people who came out and showed their support, which was great.” (Shiela Pepping photos)
