SAULT STE. MARIE – A charity hockey game will be played on Saturday, February 18, 2023, at the Pullar Arena, 435 E Portage Ave., Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. The puck will be dropped at 6:30 p.m. Employees and friends of MyMichigan Medical Center Sault will be playing against employees of Clark Construction Company to raise money for the Compassionate Needs Fund through the MyMichigan Health Foundation.
Entrance to the game is by donation. There will be opportunities to participate in a 50/50 raffle, chuck-a-puck and more! Concessions will be available for purchase and a portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the event by the Soo Eagles.
The MyMichigan Medical Center Sault Compassionate Needs Fund is used to help those living in Eastern Upper Peninsula and in need of assistance with one-time medication fills, special medical equipment and transportation to and from medical appointments.
“We are looking forward to a great event with Clark Construction Company,” Said Kevin Kalchik, president, MyMichigan Medical Center Sault. “Both organizations have a commitment to supporting the communities they serve, and we are happy that we can not only host a family friendly event but also raise funds to help patients in our community.”
“This event aligns with our core values and our strategic vision to serve the communities where we live and work,” said Sam Clark, president and CEO, Clark Construction Company. “It’s not very often you get to support a client and the community while living our values, having fun, and playing or watching hockey. Hats off to the team at MyMichigan Medical Center Sault and Clark for organizing this event that serves the Sault Ste. Marie community.”
