Toledo Police to Face-Off Against Detroit Red Wings Alumni
The Toledo Police Hockey Team will face-off against Detroit Red Wings Alumni next month at Sylvania Tam-O-Shanter. The event, scheduled for Saturday, April 21st at 7:00 p.m., seeks to raise awareness and funds for the Family and Child Abuse Prevention Center. Tickets will be available at the door - $10 for adults, $5 for children. April is National Child Abuse Prevention month. Toledo has experienced two infant homicides thus far in 2018.
“This event is a great opportunity to raise awareness for National Child Abuse Prevention month” said Toledo Police Chief George Kral. “Any officer will tell you that the worst days in police work are when a child has been harmed. I am proud of my TPD hockey players for organizing this event and for their work with the community both on and off the ice.”
“We love playing hockey. If we can go out there, put on our TPD jersey and raise some money for a great cause - it doesn’t get much better than that” said event organizer and Toledo Police Officer Stephen Bates. “As a Toledo Police officer and a father of three young children, this is a very worthwhile cause that I am passionate about. I encourage the community to come out and fill the rink with their support.”
"The capacity for Rink One at Tam-O-Shanter is 1,500 and we'd like to sell-out if possible," said TPD spokesman, Kevan Toney.
