We're thrilled to announce that we're a platinum sponsor of this year’s Pond Hockey Charity Classic, hosted by Northern Roots Hockey!
The annual event is in support of the iRise Above Foundation and its mission to provide young women with targeted, age-appropriate, and integrated health and wellness resources, in addition to tools that enable them to rise above the residual effects of breast cancer.
The pucks will fly on Saturday, March 4 from 8 am-5 pm at Chelsea Piers Sports Complex in New York City.
“This partnership with the iRise Above Foundation is an impactful way to support an issue affecting our communities. We're grateful for the opportunity to come together to support the iRise Above Foundation's mission of helping young women with breast cancer in a fun, yet meaningful way."
— Peter Sullivan, Jackpocket CEO and Founder
The tournament will feature a former NHL player on each team, coordinated by Northern Roots Hockey, in addition to each team’s 6-8 player roster. It'll be a round-robin style tournament of four versus four half ice hockey games. Jackpocket will have a team on the ice, too!
Registration is available to those 18 years of age and older.
“Our vision is for young women to feel empowered, supported, and inspired to cultivate an outstanding quality of life during and after breast cancer. A partnership with Jackpocket means this vision can become a reality and that we are able to expand our reach.”
— Gillian Lichota, iRise Above Foundation’s CEO and Founder
The New York Islanders will join Jackpocket by donating a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for hockey fans that includes an Islanders game experience for six guests with a food and beverage credit. Additionally, the Islanders are contributing an autographed item and team merchandise for tournament participants. Go Isles!
We're so lucky to be in the position to support causes that give back. Each quarter, Jackpocket will bring awareness to charities that create lasting impacts on the communities they support. Stay tuned to learn more about inspiring organizations making this world a better place to play!
