Bedford Firefighters Present: Bedford Thanksgiving Classic 2019
November 29, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm$5
Bedford Firefighter Nick Anderson is hosting an exhibition hockey game between the Town of Bedford, MA employees and Alumni vs The Bedford High School varsity hockey program. This game is scheduled for Friday Nov. 29th at 12:40pm at The Edge Sports Center and has come to be known as the “Bedford Thanksgiving Classic.” Proceeds from a 50/50 raffle will be going to benefit the hockey program whereas admission fees and an additional set of raffles will be to benefit the Asperger’s/Autism Network, www.aane.org . They are a local 501 (c)(3) nonprofit based in Watertown, MA with an excellent record for how they use money donated. Autism is near and dear to me as my oldest childhood friend has 2 wonderful children and they are both on the spectrum. This is the third year that this game has become a charitable event and we have successfully raised over $2100 with the first two. The raffle table is always chock full of prizes for everyone, the past prizes have included: autographed puck from a Boston Bruins player, gift certificates to local restaurants including Bamboo, Flatbread, Red Heat Tavern and Ken’s NY Deli, prize packs from Hockey East and the ECHL’s Worcester Railers Hockey Club, and more! Tickets for the event are $5 at the door, kids 10 and under free with a non perishable food item donation for the local food pantry. Raffle tickets are $1/ea and $5/7 tix. So after Thanksgiving, come on down for a fun exhibition game as we help the Bedford High Bucs kick off their season and raise money for charity!
