It’s a beautiful day to be alive and at Addison Ice Rink celebrating with the Team Karen Foundation!
Prior to the opening faceoff, the crowd witnessed a stirring rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner sung by our own Warrior player, Greg Scott. Great job, Greg! That was followed by the “Opening Puck Drop” which was done by Karen and Kenny Carlquist’s son, Carson. Nice job, Carson!
The Blackhawks Warriors faced off with the AWF Renegades in a fun hockey game for an even better cause. The game ended with the Renegades on top by a score of 8-5. Truly a game where the score didn’t matter. The fundraiser that followed was the main event.
With generous donations of raffle prizes, silent auction gifts and chuck-a-puck, we were able to raise a total of $4500.00 to kickoff the Team Karen Foundation fundraising. The Foundation will support and donate funds to families battling Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer.
The Blackhawks Warriors appreciate this and future opportunities to assist this great cause!
As Karen would say, “it’s a great day to be alive!”
