A full line-up of former NHL all-stars will face off against the Georgina Professional Fire Fighters Association in a benefit hockey game on Wednesday, Dec. 28 in support of Make-A-Wish Canada.

Pro Hockey Heroes is hosting the community event that promises lots of skills and laughs, and is guaranteed to be fun and memorable for all ages.

Last year’s pro hockey hero line-up included Wendel Clark, Gary Leeman, Bernie Nicholls, Steve Thomas, Dave McLlwain, Craig Muni, Dave Hutchison, Daryll Shannon and more.

The game supports the Georgina Fire Fighters Association’s charity of choice, Make-A-Wish Canada, which creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness.

Tickets for the Dec. 28 game at 7:30 p.m. start at $30 (plus HST) with additional discounts available by calling 1-800-516-5810.
