The Fedorin Cup was established in 1998 when Eric Fedorin, a 36-year-old local California hockey player, was diagnosed with brain cancer and passed away a short time after the inaugural event. In is his memory, the Athletic Sports Fund of America-ASFA will donate a portion of all proceeds to NHL Hockey Fights Cancer, the American Cancer Society and offer grants to athletes in need.
Tickets for the event are available at $10 for adults, $5 for youth 11-17, and FREE for children 10 and under with an adult. For more information on the event or to order tickets or VIP packages online, visit www.asfamerica.com
The event doors open at 2:30 p.m. at Anaheim ICE at 300 W. Lincoln Ave. near downtown Anaheim. Silent auction begins at 3:30 with warmups and the game to follow.
The Athletic Sports Fund would appreciate a product donation or gift certificate from your business to enhance their live and silent auction, as well as the opportunity drawing. This would provide great exposure for your company through printed recognition in the event Program and on t-shirts.
