An ice hockey event that has been raising millions of dollars found a way to be successful.
This year the 11 Day Power Play was outside at Buffalo RiverWorks. There were less players, but the event is still making a big difference. It was created to help save lives and raise money for cancer research.
There were no spectators, but it was live-streamed event.
“Before the ball dropped this year, we hit a million dollars,” Amy Lesakowski, one of the event’s founders, said Sunday. “Right now, $1,045,000, and we really want to hit $1.1 million this year during a pandemic.”
The event has raised more than $5 million since 2017.
