Whether it’s John Peddie of the Eager Beavers being ordained as an honorary priest for scoring the team’s first goal or Smitty the Clown taking to the ice, it was Parry Sound charities that were the overall winners of the Triple H Charity Challenge.

Net proceeds from The Flying Fathers Triple H Charity Challenge at the Bobby Orr Community Centre last Wednesday went to the Hope Pregnancy Support Centre, Hospice West Parry Sound, and Habitat for Humanity Parry Sound Chapter.

While a final tally has yet to be completed for the amount raised through sponsorships, personal donations, and food sales at the event, Chair of the FFTHCC Advertising Committee and Parry Sound Councillor Doug McCann reports over 230 tickets were sold.

This is the first year of action for the resurrected Flying Fathers hockey team and event organizer Wayne Cormier hopes to make the Triple H Charity Challenge an annual event.
