Providence College Women's Ice Hockey Continues It's Philanthropic Innitiatives.

Oct. 28, 2010

On Friday, October 22, Providence College women's ice hockey senior defenseman Christie Jensen presented the Make-A-Wish Foundation with a check for $435. The money was raised during the Road Hockey Rumble, a street hockey tournament the athlete organized. On Saturday, October 23, the fifth annual Domestic Violence Day was held during the Providence College versus Princeton game.

The Road Hockey Rumble was held on September 12 at the Friar Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex. For a donation of $10, students, faculty and staff participated in the inagural event. The tourmament was made up of 16 teams, each captained by a member of the women's ice hockey team. It marked the start of a new innitiative the team created, to give back to the community.

Domestic Violence Day was originally thought up by members of the women's ice hockey team that took a domestic violence class taught by Professor Maureen Outlaw. Professor Outlaw now runs the event in conjunction with the team each year. The team donated all of Saturday night's proceeds to the cause. This year the event raised $540 for the Sojourner House and SOAR.
