Despite poor weather, organizers of the fifth annual CFB Trenton Pond Hockey Classic are calling the event a huge success.
Games on Sunday got washed out because of the weather, but the tournament still raised $38,000 for the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation and Wounded Warriors Canada.
Organizer Jeffery Moorhouse tells Quinte News, the Friday night guest speaker ended up being the highlight of the weekend.
Wounded Warriors will use its half of the money to fund PTSD support programs, and National Partnerships Director David MacDonald says the fact that the tournament is held in Trenton, means a lot to the organization.
The TMH Foundation’s Wendy Warner gave her thanks to organizers and says the hospital will use its half of the money to help patients with eye injuries and cataracts.
This year’s tournament raised $3,000 more than last year, even with one less day of games, bringing the five-year total to about $138,000.
