KENT COUNTY, Mich.-- The community member is invited to see Kent Area Law Enforcement take on local hockey coaches for charity this Saturday, March 29.
This is the 17th year for the Byron Community Wellness Foundation’s charity hockey game, making it the longest-running law enforcement hockey game in the state. The event runs from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. with free pizza, kids’ activities, a hockey game and an open skate period. Visitors can also enjoy chuck-a-puck prizes and check out fire trucks.
Donations are encouraged. Proceeds from the event will go to the Kent County Search and Rescue, Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service and the Citizens Emergency Response Team. These groups help in searching for missing people and shoveling snow for residents who are unable to. They also helped during the spring 2013 flooding.
