"Day of Hockey" Raises $25,000 for Maine Med
Members of the Portland Pirates hockey team and staff, along with players and coaches from Cape Elizabeth and Cheverus High School hockey teams, visited The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital at Maine Medical Center in Portland to present a check for $25,000 on behalf of the "Day of Hockey." The check reflects the funds raised through the Pirates "Day of Hockey" that was held on February 19th.

Along with the check, the Pirates also presented a "Get Well" card that was signed by the participants in the "Day of Hockey", along with the toys that were donated to the kids at the hospital on the day of the event. While at the hospital, the Pirates players also visited the kids in the in-patient unit to hand out "Day of Hockey" t-shirts, Pirates player cards and sign autographs.
