Pucks for Paws Raises Funds for Homeless Animals

Posted

Seekonk, MA – Seekonk Police & Fire hosted the second annual “Pucks for Paws Hockey Benefit” in memory of Karen McHugh on Saturday, June 10th at New England Sports Village in Attleboro. Karen was a Seekonk town employee and long time devoted member of the Seekonk Save A Pet Society, whose life was cut short 2 years ago by a hit and run driver. The fundraiser benefited Seekonk Save A Pet, which helps care for the homeless pets at the Seekonk Animal Shelter until they are adopted. Although the Seekonk Police & Fire hockey team was once again defeated by Freetown Police & Fire, both teams played a great game and ended the evening at “The Barn” restaurant located in the complex.
A special plaque, created by Colonial Trophy in Lakevillle, was presented to our special guest, Sandy Lima, Karen’s spouse. Thank you to Seekonk Police & Fire, Freetown Police & Fire as well as everyone who organized, attended, volunteered, supported and donated!
Thanks to 2nd Time Around Sports in Cranston for printing the event T-shirts, which can still be purchased for $15 by emailing saveapetevents@gmail.com. T-shirts are available in black and blue (sizes S – XXL) and lime green (L – XXL). Thank you to Lisa Campagna for creating the event flyers and to Nicholas Rondeau for taking some great photos of the event!
We are truly grateful for your generosity and continued support and look forward to next year’s hockey game!
