The fourth annual Hockey Night for Headwaters came to Shelburne this year for a night of skating and hockey at the Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex.
The event raises funds for the Headwaters Health Care Centre in Orangeville and will be used toward the purchase of capital equipment at the local hospital.
The event is organized by hospital associates Janet Gordanier, Patty Napran, Stephen Gill, and John Roberto who works with Presice Parklink who operate the hospital's parking lot.
The event started four years ago when the idea of a staff hockey game to raise funds turned into a reality.
“John and I came up with the idea of doing a hockey fun thing because we're both involved in hockey,” explained Janed Gordanier of how it started.
“We came up with a staff verses staff game - the Docs verses the paramedics. We sent out an email to the Docs and paramedics and asked if they would be interested. Patty came up with the idea of doing the bake sale and the raffle. We started at Teen Ranch and then moved it up here because we wanted to do a dance and a bar. We also teamed up with the Shelburne Muskies. They are helping with the bar.”
Many people who work at the hospital are from Shelburne so the move to the CDRC slotted in very easily.
A family skate started off the night, followed by a game between staff members at 8:30 p.m., and finally the showstopper game featuring physicians verses paramedics that followed.
Money raised at the event will go to the Hospital to help pay for needed capital equipment.
