Join us for a 3 vs. 3 pond hockey tournament at Evergreen Lake (CO) and help raise money for the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center. Don't want to play? Come skate! Don't live in Colorado? Get a shirt or donate!
A little pond hockey goes a long way. On Sunday, January 27th, join us for a 3 vs. 3 tournament (all skill levels welcome) at Evergreen Lake, recognized by CNN as one of the world's most beautiful ice rinks. Not sure you want to play? Check out the details below for more ways to get involved.
Why: It's about time we play some pond hockey. So why not do it for a good cause? Tournament proceeds, shirt proceeds, and donations benefit the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center, one of the best cancer centers in the world. Funds will specifically go toward esophageal cancer research and care. Learn more about esophageal cancer here.
What: 3 vs. 3 pond hockey tournament (all skill levels welcome) + open skating + t-shirts. Private warming hut will have food and drinks for attendees. Can't make it? Buy a t-shirt or donate the amount of your choice!
When: Sunday, January 27th from 12-4pm. Tournament entry will close on January 1st, but donations and shirts will be open until the day after the tournament.
Where: Evergreen Lake in Evergreen, Colorado
What's the shirt about? No one can have too many hockey t-shirts, especially the Palffy family. On the front, the tournament logo is printed in white and periwinkle, the official color for esophageal cancer. The back is home to the iconic University of Michigan block M, and a call to join us in this fight against esophageal cancer. Shirts are included in the tournament entry, but are also available separately. Classic men's cut, 100% pre-shrunk cotton, Fruit of the Loom.

Whether you've never skated, barely skated, or you're a young Stevie Y, we encourage all skill levels to join the tournament. Though there are (small) prizes involved, it will be otherwise non-competitive. If you still don't want to play, come hang out, eat some food, have a drink, and hit the extra rinks for open skate.
An entry fee is required at the Evergreen Lake house. It is $6 if you have your own skates, $9 if you need to rent (skates and entry included). Just sign up for the open skate donation option, which helps cover hut rental and includes a small donation.
