Hockey Starved? Wings Alumni, Carhartt Play for Charity in Dearborn Friday
The NHL lockout is still ongoing, but that doesn't mean Red Wings fans can't get a dose of hockey action.
On Friday, Dec. 7, Red Wings alumni will take on Carhartt employees on the ice of the Dearborn Ice Skating Center at 7 p.m. for a good cause.
The DISC is located at 14900 Ford Road in Dearborn.
Proceeds will benefit the Macomb-Oakland Regional Center, which serves 5,000 people with disabilities in Macomb, Oakland, Wayne and nine other counties.
Tickets for the general public are available at the door for $10, while tickets are free for people with disabilities and their caregivers or family members who accompany them.
“Carhartt and the Red Wings Alumni have made a difference year after year in the lives of thousands of our people,” said Gerald Provencal, MORC executive director. “This is the eighth year they have played for MORC, and we are grateful to them.”
Hockey fans will get a chance to see former hockey greats from the Wings and other NHL teams, including Mickey Redmond, Darren McCarty, Joe Kocur, Kirk Maltby, Paul Ysebaert and John Ogrodnick. The Carhartt players work for the rugged outdoor clothing company Carhartt, based in Dearborn, Michigan.
