Playing hockey is almost a rite of passage in Algoma, but it can really put a dent in a family’s wallet. For the past five years Silver Creek Golf Course has helped family’s acquire brand new equipment from Soo Source for Sports.
Jamie Henderson General Manager of the Silver Creek Golf Course told Saultonline that for the past 5 years the golf course hosts the Annual Little Caesar‘s Classic hockey Tournament to raise the money to purchase the equipment. This year 4,000 dollars was raised and Henderson says they will spend “every penny of that $4,000, not a penny less.“
Recipients of the equipment write letters to Henderson explaining their love of hockey and why they deserve the equipment.
Henderson says this year they will purchase equipment for 20 hockey players.
