On Sunday June 22rd, Prosserman JCC at Sherman Campus will host the 3nd annual "Game On" Road Hockey Tournament.

Funds raised will go towards children with pediatric disability and illness, and youth sports scholarships. Over $100,000 has been raised during the first two years of the event.

The tournament features several divisions for youth and one for adults as well, and registration is now open. The day includes entertainment, plenty of family activities, great hockey action and some tremendous team, and individual prizes. Past top fundraising prizes have included Trips to Florida, to watch an NHL game in a private suite, and a VIP Toronto Maple Leaf experience, which included meeting the players.

Game On videos have featured many prominent people in the world of sports, entertainment and politics such as NHL Coaching legend Mike Keenan, Canadian Minister Peter Kent, ESPN’s Dan Shulman and Paul Godfrey of Post media. The 2014 video will be released shortly.

We are also very excited that Three to Be has joined Prosserman JCC and Chai Lifeline, as benefactors of Game On. Their mission is to advocate and raise funds to support and advance the development of innovative research, education and therapies for children with neurological disorders.

Along with committed National and local sponsors, great media coverage and exposure to some remarkable charities, GAME ON will be the event of the summer.
