Former Philadelphia Flyers, business leaders help commercial real estate firm raise tens of thousands for local causes through charity hockey game
Blending a pro-sports fantasy camp with a corporate gala fundraiser was a unique way to take its community commitment to the next level, but the Wolf Commercial Real Estate (WCRE) team is always comfortable in uncharted territory. Its Celebrity Charity Hockey Event was a runaway success. The game, conceived by Philadelphia Flyer legend and WCRE director of strategic relationships Brian Propp, brought several fan favorites back to the ice for a game alongside thirty area business leaders this weekend. The result was an incredible gross of $45,000 raised for a variety of local charities.
Joining Propp in the cause and on the ice were former Flyers Doug Crossman, Ray Allison, Kjell Samuelsson, Andre Faust, Ed Hospadar, and Todd Fedoruk. Recent Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame inductee Lou Nolan, public address announcer of the Philadelphia Flyers, served as emcee.
All proceeds from the charity hockey 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.

“Since the day we opened our doors our team has kept a tight focus on improving the health, well-being, and opportunities of the people of Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia,” said Jason M. Wolf, founding principal of WCRE. “With more than sixty sponsors and hundreds of people coming to support the game, it has been thrilling to see that so many of our friends, associates, and peers share our commitment to this community.”
