SECOND ANNUAL WCRE CELEBRITY CHARITY HOCKEY EVENT RAISES $65,000
In its second year, built on the remarkable success of last year, this time raising $65,000 to be shared by several charitable causes. The game, which was played At the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees this past Saturday, is the brainchild of Philadelphia Flyer legend and WCRE director of strategic relationships Brian Propp. Blending community fun with sports fantasy camp, he brought several Flyers fan favorites back to the ice for a game alongside thirty area business leaders. Over its two years, the game has raised some $112,000 for The WCRE Foundation.
Joining The WCRE Foundation for a second year were former Flyers Brian Propp, Doug Crossman, Kjell Samuelsson, Andre Faust, Todd Fedoruk and Ray Allison. Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame inductee Lou Nolan, public address announcer of the Philadelphia Flyers, served as emcee. This year Kerry Fraser served as referee. Fraser was a referee in the NHL for 30 seasons, including officiating 12 different Stanley Cup Finals series.
All proceeds from the event will be shared among the CARES Institute at Rowan University, the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey, the Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter, the American Cancer Society, YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties, and Samaritan Healthcare and Hospice. Each of these organizations benefits from WCRE’s long-standing practice of donating a portion of its proceeds from every transaction to an area charity.

“Last year we saw what was possible, and this time we had more sponsors, more spectators, more raffle prize donations, and more money going to our excellent charitable partners,” said Jason M. Wolf, founding principal of WCRE. “It is a credit to our friends, neighbors, and business associates that we are able to come together to improve the lives of others.”
