The second annual Lancaster Central Teachers Association Charity Hockey Event will be held from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 7, at Holiday Twin Rinks, 3465 Broadway, Cheektowaga.

Members of the LCTA will take on the Western New York Media All-Stars during the event, which will raise money for the Lancaster Youth Bureau and the Lancaster Trinity Food Pantry.

Tickets are $5 per adult and $2 per child younger than 18 and are available at the Youth Bureau, 200 Oxford Ave., Village of Lancaster, and at Lancaster schools. Tickets also will be available at the door.

Each adult ticket includes automatic entry into a raffle for the following prizes:

  • First: One-year gym membership to Fitness Fusion ($360 value).
  • Second: Autographed Ryan Miller jersey ($250 value).
  • Third: 8 gigabyte iPod touch ($225 value).
  • Fourth: Coby 22-inch HDTV/DVD player combo ($220 value).
  • Fifth: Two eight-hour lift passes to Kissing Bridge and a $25 gift card to the Harvest Room Restaurant ($125 value).
  • Sixth: $100 gift card to Rick’s on Main Street in East Aurora.

Each youth ticket includes automatic entry into a raffle for the following prizes:

  • First: Wii game system with second controller ($230 value).
  • Second: Two $100 karate packages to WNY Karate Center (includes lessons and equipment).
  • Third: Two-hour bowling party for 10 people at AMF Lancaster Lanes ($150 value).

In addition, a basket raffle with more than 60 prizes and a 50/50 drawing will be held.

Organizers said that last year’s game was a success, raising $4,822.15, and they thanked area businesses and residents for their donations and continued support. Lancaster teachers pulled away with the win last year, defeating their opponents 11-4.

 “Our community is very fortunate to have such a great LCTA with dedicated members who go above and beyond each and every day for their students and community,” Karen Schanne of the Lancaster Youth Bureau stated in a note to the LCTA after last year’s event. “The donation that the Lancaster Youth Bureau will receive for the School Supply Closet will benefit hundreds of children.”

The LCTA also thanked the Western New York Media All-Stars for contributing their time to the Lancaster community as well as several major donors, including Lancaster Auto and Truck, Holiday Twin Rinks, Fitness Fusion, Kissing Bridge and AMF Lancaster Lanes.
