On January 25, 2020 at the Merrill Fay Arena in Laconia, the New England Wolves battled the Seacoast Spartans in a northern conference EHL matchup. More than just the on ice action was the 5th Annual JBT Game, which raises money for the Cure Starts Now foundation, an organization whose mission is to raise money for a home run cure for cancer research.
”This event is one the highlights of our Wolves season, and brings a ton of people into the building for a great cause.” Commented Wolves GM Andrew Trimble.
With at the door donations the event pushed their totals to over $25,000 donated for this game and $100,000.00 for the 5 year totals of the JBT Game. Another amazing milestone was reached when, the NH chapter of the Cure Starts Now, officially raised over 1 million dollars for cancer research.
Chad Baron, a Laconia native and current Gilford, NH electrician, won the JBT Shootout with an amazing move that beat Wolves netminder Colin Larson. Baron raised over $3,100.00 personally for the event.
Wolves management would like to express a sincere “Thank you” to the Thompson family, our fans, our shooters and all of the donors! It’s an amazing opportunity for our young men to be a part of such a great community and great cause.
