Medwings vs Bitewings

charity hockey game

Tonight, despite the snow, we will be heading out for a charity hockey game.

New Jersey Medical School and Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, battle it out on the ice in the 3rd annual Medwings vs. Bitewings ice hockey game on March 20th at the Prudential Center in Newark at 8 p.m.

The match is a fundraiser for the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation, which helps families who are struggling with a child’s illness from cancer. The suggested donation is $5 at the door.

Tonight will be the 3rd time that the aspiring doctors and dentists have faced off on the ice.  The first game, in 2013, raised nearly $7,500 for NJ families impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Last year, they raised close to $15,000 for the SeanHanna foundation in support of pediatric cancer patients and their families. Tonight, our friend Joe will be on the ice as we cheer on the Medwings.  Joe has close ties to the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation, after battling childhood cancer as an infant.

At the time of this post over $12,500 has been raised and at the end of the night, no matter who wins or loses, it will be a success.
