One Big Hockey Family, Petoskey Youths Help ‘The Wex’ in Cadillac

Communities connected on the ice this past weekend to show that hockey is more than just a game.

Petoskey youth hockey players handed a $1,000 check to some Cadillac players during districts over the weekend to go toward helping Friends of the Wex.

The money will go toward keeping the rink running at the Wexford Civic Center.

The ice arena is struggling after a failure of its ice maker.

The gesture was posted to Facebook with the very fitting hashtags, #hockeyfamily and #itsmorethanagame.

Petoskey players earned the money through a concession stand and can drive.

If you would like to donate, you can send checks to The Friends of the Wex Fund or donate to the GoFundMe campaign online.
