Hello Troop 258,
On behalf of Nick Vega and classmates we would like to invite you to our 2nd annual Nick Vega Memorial Roller Hockey Tournament. The event will be at Deerwood Park (in Ramtown), 2740 Lakewood Allenwood Road Howell, NJ 07731, on Saturday, May 24th all day starting at 8am.
Nick was a graduating senior at Howell High School, Class of 2012. Nick battled cancer since the end of his sophomore year and succumb to it in 2013. Last year, a small group of Nick’s friends got together and started a fundraising effort to help his family with medical bills. We raised over $1,600 with only 8 teams playing. This year we have almost doubled the amount of participating teams. At the request of Nick’s family all proceeds will be going towards the Francis Foundation For Kids Fighting Cancer, whose mission is to bring smiles to kids fighting cancer.
Attendance is free so please come and join us for the day to watch some hockey. All proceeds from the event, food sales, and donations will go to the Francis Foundation in Nick’s memory. Rain date will be the following day, Sunday May 25th
