At center ice
Bitter cold weather did not halt the attendance or fun at Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island’s Family Day with the Providence Bruins on Sunday, Feb. 17. More than 250 tickets were sold to support HHCRI's annual Camp BraveHeart, a two-day summer camp for children and teens grieving the loss of a loved one. Funds raised through ticket sales, a raffle and a silent auction totaled $8,000. It was a win-win situation all around, as the Providence Bruins defeated the Worcester Sharks 3-1. Six-year-old Michael Tober, from Warwick, dropped the puck at the beginning of the game. With him, are Chuck Iacono, VP of Philanthropy, and PBruins player Ryan Spooner. Michael’s parents, Kelly and David Tober, are longtime supporters of Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island and residents of Warwick. David teaches Social Studies at Toll Gate High School.
