Face Off With Cancer is excited to announce their continued partnership with Discount Hockey through their sponsorship of ‘Face Off With Cancer 2016’,
The event, taking place at Iceoplex Simi Valley on August 27-28, 2016, is Face Off With Cancer’s annual flagship fundraiser. The 2-day long adult ice hockey tournament features a unique 3-on-3, cross-ice format and an NHL-style skills competition in which 36 teams will participate. Funds raised at the event will support Face Off With Cancer’s mission of honoring and supporting local families who have been affected by cancer.
“Everyone knows someone who has suffered an illness or loss due to cancer. The sport of hockey
has a history of supporting charities, including the fight against cancer,” remarked Richard Standke, owner of Discount Hockey. “For the second year in a row, Discount Hockey is proud to support Face Off With Cancer with their important fund raising event.”
Since their establishment in early 2012, Face Off With Cancer has coordinated several hockey tournaments, fundraisers and events to support various local cancer support organizations and multiple families affected by the disease. As an all-volunteer organization, they rely heavily on the contributions of the local hockey and business communities to support their mission.
“Sponsorships like this allow us to provide a better experience for our participants and keeps them coming back year after year”, explained Jennifer King, a Face Off With Cancer Board Member who has worn many hats over the years.
President and Co-Founder Ryan King added “We are very pleased to have a local hockey retailer like Discount Hockey on board again for this year’s event. Arrangements like these don’t just benefit both organizations, but the entire local hockey community.”
The organization has started preparations for the event and are seeking volunteers and sponsors of all kinds. For information on how you can get involved with Face Off With Cancer, please visit http://www.faceoffwithcancer.org or call (818) 217-FOWC.
