There’s hockey for a great cause on Saturday, March 19th. The Pittsburgh Emergency Medicine Foundation (PEMF) Pucks and Sticks Charity Hockey Game will feature the Pittsburgh Celebrity Hockey Team vs. a team of EMS All Stars joined by The Hanson Brothers (of Slap Shot fame). The evening will also feature a silent auction, raffles, Chuck-A-Puck, and more! Pucks and Sticks will take place at the RMU Island Sports Center from 7:00 pm – 9:00 PM and tickets are just $10.

All proceeds from this event will benefit PEMF emergency medicine research and education including: basic and clinical research in emergency medical care, the promotion of education and training for medical personnel and the lay public, and support for the research and educational activities of residents and fellows of the University of Pittsburgh Affiliated Residency in Emergency Medicine.

Councilman Bill Peduto will be playing for the Pittsburgh Celebrity Hockey Team. He’s played hockey for 38 years including playing in the State Championship game for Chartiers Valley and playing during his Freshmen and Sophomore years at Carnegie-Mellon University when they won the regional collegiate championship.

Come and watch Peduto vs. The Hanson Brothers and give to a great cause!
