I didn't get to attend this event, but from the news article this morning, it looked like it was a great turnout, one which raised $60,000 and had to be moved from the Practice Rink to the Main Ice because of the overwhelming popularity of the game!
The Devils will also be donating money from the ticket sales of Friday's game, so if you don't already have tickets, go get them!!
More than 3,000 tickets were sold to the Police Officer Marc Anthony DiNardo Memorial Hockey Game, which had to be moved from the Devilsí practice rink to the main arena in response to the demand.
"Itís a celebration of a fun, fantastic personís life," said Jeff Vanderbeek, the Devilsí chairman and managing partner.
All proceeds from the event will be given to a memorial scholarship fund established for the DiNardosí son and two daughters, now ages 2, 3 and 4. The New Jersey Devils and its Alumni Association donated $10,000. Ford Lincoln Mercury, a team sponsor, gave $5,000.
A portion of ticket sales from the Devilsí Dec. 18 game against the Ottawa Senators will also be given to the fund, Vanderbeek said.
