Wil­liamstown O.D.R. tour­na­ment to sup­port two char­i­ties

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - – Sean Bray

A hockey tour­na­ment be­ing or­ga­nized for next month at the out­door rink in Wil­liamstown will raise funds for two char­i­ties, ex­plains the event’s co-or­ga­nizer.

Colton Gal­lant says the ben­e­fi­cia­ries of the day will be the Julie MacLach­lan Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion and Project Si­lent Night.

The former sup­ports in­di­vid­u­als who are fac­ing strug­gles in their life. Project Si­lent Night pur­chases chair beds for fam­ily care­givers at the Corn­wall Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tal.

The hockey tour­na­ment will take place Satur­day, Feb. 18, at Paul Ro­zon Memo­rial Park, be­gin­ning at 8 a.m.

Play will be a three-on-three for­mat, with the aim to have 12 to 16 par­tic­i­pate. Each group must have a goal­tender, at least two fe­male skaters, and a min­i­mum of six skaters in to­tal. En­try is $140 per team. Gal­lant, who is putting on this event along with Al­lis­ter Mac­donell, says there will be raf­fle prizes and live music as part of the day’s ac­tiv­i­ties. They are also look­ing into bar ser­vice for those of age.

In­di­vid­u­als in­ter­ested should con­tact the or­ga­niz­ers di­rectly or through the event Face­book page at http://bit.ly/2iwC8Co
