Hospice tourney
The 18th annual Hockey for Hospice tournament raised more than $210,000 during the three-day tournament in Windsor and Essex County.

The LaSalle White Lightning atom team collected $6,000 of pledges. The Belle River pee wee team were second by raising $4,477.

“Every year, we get more and more teams and every year the response is excellent,” tournament co-chair Paul Pietraszko said. “The fundraiser has never gone backwards.”

Aaron Rice of the LaSalle State Farm Insurance was the top individual fundraiser, collecting $3,100. Rice won two gold tickets to the Air Canada Centre Feb. 1 to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs host the Ottawa Senators.

The top prize also includes transportation to Toronto by Via Rail and a one night stay at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.
