Area special Olympics received over $4,600 from charity game

On Jan. 16, The Guelph Police No-Stars took on the Guelph Storm in a charity hockey game to raise funds for the Guelph Welling­ton Special Olympics.


Guelph Police Sergeant Douglas Pflug said the game was a hard fought battle by both teams and in the end, it came down to penalty shots. Constable Ian Smith (who, for some unexplained reason, was also the game’s referee) scored the winning goal. The game was highlighted by generosity of Don Cherry, of Hockey Night in Canada, who provided eight signed hockey memorabilia items that were given out in random draws throughout the game. The $4,688.73 raised this give a nine year total of $48,173.73 that the game has rais­ed for Guelph-Wellington Special Olym­pics.
