TIME CHANGE FOR 7/11/14 FRIDAY NIGHT JOSH CHARITY GAME: 6-730PM. YOU ARE WELCOME TO COME AT 530PM! RINK WILL BE OPEN! WE EXPECT THE PUCK TO DROP NO LATER THAN 630PM. (Apologies-circumstances beyond our control.)
The Esformes family and Hockey In Newark are proud to announce that we are holding the 4th Annual Josh Esformes Charity Hockey Game at the AmeriHealth Pavilion (New Jersey Devils practice arena connected to the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ) at 6:00 pm on July 11, 2014.
Josh Esformes was an alumni of St. Peter's Prep, class of 2005, and Rutgers University Alumni, class of 2009. He not only was a star player on both his high school and college team, where he was assistant captain his senior year, but he also excelled, both inside and outside of the classroom. Josh earned degrees in Economics and Philiosophy from Rutgers.
Josh was coaching a travel team, ProTech Ducks, and was the perfect role model for young hockey players to look up to. To keep his memory and his caring attitude towards life going, the Esformes family teamed up with Hockey In Newark to establish a scholarship fund in Josh's name. Each year we hold a charity game, with ex-teammates coming from all the organizations Josh played for growing up and all the lives he touched in the process.
All proceeds from this charity game and donations made here go towards helping a young Hockey In Newark player who excels on and off the ice. We will name another Josh Esformes Scholarship recipient on July 11, 2014.
We appreciate your support now and in the past and we are very grateful for keeping Josh's spirit alive through this scholarship in his name.
We can't wait to see you all there on July 11th, 2014 at AmeriHealth Pavillion from 6-730PM!
