According to the Toledo Blade’s Allison Dunn, the Red Wings Alumni Association and the Toledo Police Department are squaring off in a charitable game on Saturday, April 21st:
The Toledo Police Department Hockey team is scheduled to take on the Detroit Red Wings alumni team — for the first time — at 7 p.m. Saturday at Sylvania Tam-O-Shanter, 7060 W. Sylvania Ave. Notable names like Darren McCarthy, Joey Kocur, Mickey Redmond, and Toledo native Bryan Smolinski, are set to attend.
Funds raised from Saturday’s game will be donated to the Family and Child Abuse Prevention Center, an agency which assists thousands of families each year in education and intervention to reduce family violence.
The agency works closely with Toledo police at the Children’s Advocacy Center and through the Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Program, said the agency’s Chief Executive Officer Christie Jenkins.
“This money will help to ensure that we do not turn anyone away for services and that we are able to see all victims and their families at no cost to them,” Ms. Jenkins said.
