The Cornwall Colts junior 'A' hockey team joined several community partners to help raise $4,500 for St. Vincent De Paul Cornwall. The money was raised through the 4th Annual Colts Charity Hockey Game held last Sunday afternoon.

The Benson Group, Scotiabank, and Shoeless Joe’s Cornwall headline the list of supporters for the event.  Each local celebrity paid $100 for St. Vincent De Paul to participate. 

Team MacInnis has bragging rights over Team McBride this year, thanks to a 10-8 victory.  

"The players have a lot of fun getting to know some of our community partners," said Coach Ian MacInnis. "The local celebrities get to see just how good some our players are.  It’s a lot of fun for everyone involved."
