, Don Maloney
and Glenn Anderson
to greet fans and supporters of this great program.
Hosted by MSG Network broadcaster Sam Rosen, the event featured a live and silent auction, with the proceeds benefitting the initiatives that are so near and dear to IHIH.
Ice Hockey In Harlem is a non-profit community based organization for youth that uses the sport of hockey to promote academic achievement, responsibility, teamwork and good character.
The objective of the organization is to provide inspiration, encouragement and guidance to children leading to better life experiences, education and career opportunities. Since 1987, Ice Hockey In Harlem has enriched the lives of more then 1000 inner-city boys and girls.
"We all have an obligation to give something back, especially athletes and others who serve as role models for kids," said Beukeboom, who served as honorary IHIH chairman during his playing days in New York. "It's extremely important. I was especially lucky to do so much for IHIH, because there I watched kids mature and develop in the sport that I love so much."
