Come out and enjoy watching our local Law Enforcement and Fire Firefighters as they battle on the ice during this benefit hockey game.
This year we have partnered with the American Childhood Cancer Organization – Inland Northwest
https://www.acco.org/inlandnw/Home.aspx as our main beneficiary.
Here is an excerpt from their website explaining their mission.
American Childhood Cancer Organization Inland Northwest's unique mission is to help each family cope with life during childhood cancer treatments and rebuild their lives after cancer from the experienced perspective of those who have been there before. Your
donations will enhance the lives of children with cancer and their families. You will be providing emotional and practical support, education, patient advocacy, and the assurance that no child or family will have to fight cancer alone.
American Childhood Cancer Organization – Inland Northwest Mission Statement:
“To educate, support, serve, and advocate for families of children with cancer, survivors of childhood cancer, and the professionals who care for them.”
We serve all children diagnosed with cancer from Eastern Washington and those traveling to Spokane, Washington from North Idaho and Western Montana for treatment. Funds raised locally remain in our communities to help children with cancer in the Inland Northwest.
This is a great cause and we are looking forward to raising as much money as possible to help them. Please come out and join us!!
