The Chatham top of the NHL Alumni Benefit Tour this past Thursday was a success on all fronts, raising $10,000 for the Special Olympics.

In a news post by the Chatham-Kent Police Service, Public Information Officer Const. Kelly Helbin wrote,

“The Scotiabank NHL Alumni Benefit Tour gave Chatham-Kent hockey fans a unique experience and an evening to remember that showcased top shelf skills, on ice pranks and old fashioned hockey nostalgia. This great evening provided something for fans of all ages and gave us all an exciting opportunity to see a lighter side of these hockey greats play against CKPS officers while raising $10,000 for a great cause!”

Helbin went on to thank sponsors, fans, and local officers for their efforts in the evening.

The game saw the Chatham-Kent Knight Sticks face off against NHL alumni including Owen Nolan, Gilbert Dionne, Brent Gretzky, Ryan VandenBussche, Todd Warriner, Bryan Muir, and Rick Vaive.
