Skate With the Greats 2016
RMHC-CNI partnered with MB Financial Park in Rosemont, Dr Pepper and the Chicago Blackhawk Alumni Association to present the 4th Annual ‘Skate with the Greats.’
Hockey fans were given the opportunity to meet current Chicago Blackhawk players Trevor Van Riemsdyk and Andrew Desjardins as well as legendary Chicago Blackhawk Hall of Famer, the great, Denis Savard, who were on-site and signing autographs. Attendees also met and skated with other Chicago Blackhawk alumni including Cliff Koroll, Eric Daze, Troy Murray, Murray Bannerman, Phil Russell, Brian Noonan, Grant Mulvey, Reggie Kerr, Peter Marsh, Jack O’Callahan, and Steve Konroyd.
“We are grateful to the Blackhawk Alumni Association for their continued support and dedication to Ronald McDonald House Charities and thrilled to partner with them again on this year’s ‘Skate with the Greats’ event,” said Holly Buckendahl, CEO of RMHC-CNI.
This was a record year, raising over $92,000 for the families staying at our eight Chicagoland locations. It was a beautiful day on the ice rink and a wonderful time was had by all.
