The Peterborough Petes will host a press conference announcing results and fundraising totals of the 2017 Special Hockey International Tournament inside the Pat Casey Alumni Room in the Peterborough Memorial Centre on Tuesday, June 13 at 11am.
At the press conference, SHI tournament organizer David Smith will speak about the challenges of organizing this year’s event, which wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the community.
Smith and Petes President Dave Pogue will present the two local special hockey teams – the Kawartha Komets and Electric City Maroon & White – with donations from the proceeds of the tournament, which will be used to further develop local special hockey. The Petes will also be presented with a plaque in recognition for their involvement in the tournament.
Photo, video, and interview opportunities will follow the formal proceedings.
