The annual Make-A-Wish Hockey All-Star Classic is slated for Saturday, June 29 at Gutterson Fieldhouse.
The event is multi-faceted with a skills competition taking place on Friday, the New Hampshire-Vermont showdown on Saturday and an initiative to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
On Saturday afternoon, the best recently graduated seniors from Vermont will take on their neighbors from New Hampshire. The women’s game will begin at 4:30 p.m. and the men’s game will start shortly after around 6:45 p.m. All ticket proceeds will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Local 22/44 stopped by the skills competition to hear from the athletes on what it means to participate in the Twin State showdown while raising money for a special cause.
