Integrated engineering solutions companies OBG, Part of Ramboll and Arcadis recently held the 16th Annual Hockey Benefit to support Hillside Family of Agencies on March 30, 2019 at the Cicero Twin Rinks in Cicero, New York. All proceeds from the event were given to Hillside Family of Agencies to support youth and family health and education services across central New York.
This event, which began as a friendly rivalry between the companies in 2001, has become an annual tournament raising more than $125,000 for central New York causes and communities over the last 18 years. For the past two years, the companies have hosted a kick-off happy hour event with players competing behind the bar to raise the most money for the selected charity. Like in past years, this year's benefit game included a free skate for attendees, raffle prizes and a post-game party at the rink.
Past recipients of this tournament have included John J. LaManche Scholarship Fund, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central New York, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Awareness, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Imagine Syracuse, American Red Cross of Central New York, Baltimore Woods Nature Center, On Point for College, the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) and the Syracuse City School District.
