It was a hockey night in South Florida! On Friday, January 13, 2012, Team Alex, from the South Florida Hydrocephalus WALK, joined forces with the Florida Panthers Foundation with a 50/50 raffle during their game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Panthers may have lost but the Hydrocephalus Association sure won as Alex and 30 of his closest friends bombarded hockey fans as they sold tickets for the raffle at the beginning of the game and during both intermissions. Not only did team Alex have fun raising awareness, but also the Panthers Foundation (who works closely helping kids with cancer) and the Hydrocephalus Association, each walked away with a check for $ 1,138.00! Not a bad way to kick off the 2012 South Florida WALK being held in early November in Deerfield Beach, Florida. Thanks to all our volunteers who participated that night!
