Proceeds from the game help fund the CMARS program, which helps people with disabilities find ways to enjoy the great outdoors.
Garfinkle said that in the last three years, the annual games have raised $70,000 for adaptive equipment, scholarships to help those in need participate in CMARS programs and a broader array of offerings.
“I’m very excited about this,” she said. “My dad actually played in an alumni game years ago, and I got to watch. It’s going to be a great game of hockey.”
