Wolves Annual JBT Game Sets New Milestone
Laconia, NH — On Jan. 25, 2020, the New England Wolves battled the Seacoast Spartans in an Eastern Hockey League Northern Conference matchup at Merrill Fay Arena.
More than just a game, the event also marked the 5th Annual JBT game in honor of John Bradley Thompson raising money for The Cure Starts Now
Foundation, an organization whose mission is determined to find the cure for cancer through research.
Through the efforts of the Wolves and the New Hampshire community, the 5th Annual event raised over $23,000 bringing its five-year total raised to over $100,000.
”This event is one the highlights of our Wolves season and brings a ton of people into the building for a great cause,” Wolves GM Andrew Trimble said.
The event helped surpass one million dollars raised by the New Hampshire Chapter of Cure Starts Now.
Chad Baron, a Laconia native and current Gilford, N.H. electrician, won the JBT Shootout with an amazing move that beat Wolves’ netminder Colin Larson.
Baron personally raised over $3,100 for the event.
Wolves management would like to express a sincere “Thank You” to the Thompson family, our fans, our shooters and all of the donors! It is an amazing opportunity for our young men to be a part of such a great community and great cause.
Thanks to all involved in tonight’s JBT game. 5 year totals donated to @CureStartsNow at this event surpassed 100k, and the NH chapter eclipsed the 1 million mark. We have an amazing community here in Laconia. Wolves Mafia is strong. JBT strong. @EHL_Hockey @usajuniorhockey pic.twitter.com/z5EDEyCgfP
