THE WHY: Tucker loved playing and watching hockey. He only got to play a few years and had to coach when he wasn’t in the hospital his last year, but he looked forward to every game, practice and even tryouts. That is because he got to meet new players and for Tucker that meant he would make a new friend. To celebrate Tucker’s birthday, his mom created Tucker’s HOCKEY EXPLOSION. This is a birthday party that has everything Tucker loves: hockey, playing with old friends, meeting new friends, music, games, prizes, and even an appearance by his dog, Stanley Cup!
WHEN: The second annual HOCKEY EXPLOSION, celebrating what should be Tucker’s 12th birthday, will be on Saturday, October 6th, 2018.
WHAT: Players ages 6 to 15 will play 3 on 3 games with age mates, while the high school players will compete in a skills competition like the NHL All Stars do! All participants will get a Team Tucker Swag Bag with a Play Laugh Love water bottle. There is also a raffle offering over 100 prizes such as hockey memorabilia, autographed Wild gear, and gift cards from restaurants, shops and services.
WHERE: Please join the fun at The Hopkins Pavilion on Excelsior Boulevard!
