Tournament raises funds for Armed Forces

Great things happen when the hockey community unites for a common cause.

That was the case at the recent Patriots Challenge Hockey Tournament, which rallied around the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks to help members of our Armed Forces.
 
The tournament's participants – the '99 Pee Wee Majors of the New Jersey Rockets, Team Maryland and Pittsburgh Hornets – competed in September for the Patriots Challenge Cup at Pittsburgh's Robert Morris University Island Sports Center. The trophy was donated by the Rockets' Mascali family to honor those lost on September 11th. Joseph Mascali, a New York City fireman from Rescue 5 on Staten Island, was killed while courageously trying to rescue others in the World Trade Center.

The Hornets would go on to top the Rockets in the final, but the real victories occurred off the ice. Each of the three teams pledged a community service project, and the results were impressive.

The Rockets collected more than $15,000 of donations for the Wounded Warrior project and sent more than 150 pounds of supplies to a U.S. Army combat unit in Afghanistan. 

"The tournament exceeded everyone's expectations, and we met our mission of combining competitive youth hockey with community service," said Rockets parent Arnie Mascali.

The Hornets also sent care packages to military personnel. Team Maryland supported the Fisher House Foundation, which provides free or low cost lodging to veterans and military families receiving treatment at military medical centers.
