DIX HILLS, N.Y. – On Saturday, May 7th, 2022, the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office Hockey Team took on the New York Cancer Foundation in a charity hockey game at Dix Hills Ice Rink! The charity showdown served as a rematch of the first “Hockey for Hope” game, which was won last August by the Sheriff’s.
Executive Director of the New York Cancer Center Tina MacNicholl-Toulon was on hand for the game, which also included Suffolk County Corrections Investigator Meghan Adamo singing a beautiful rendition of our National Anthem, and New York Cancer Foundation Grant Recipient Laura Stempkowski dropping the puck for the ceremonial face-off!
“Sheriff Toulon and his entire Office do a tremendous job in protecting and serving the residents of Suffolk County,” said Presiding Officer Kevin McCaffrey from the bleachers of the ice rink, “and for them to continue to give back beyond their County service through raising funds for charity and encouraging the growth of the sport is truly inspiring.”
When the final horn sounded, the New York Cancer Foundation found itself victorious, keeping hold of a four-to-zero shutout and tying the series between the Foundation and the Sheriff’s at one a piece.
Legislator Kevin McCaffrey represents Suffolk County's 14th Legislative District, which encompasses the Villages of Lindenhurst and Babylon, the hamlets of West Babylon and North Lindenhurst, portions of Copiague, North Babylon, and Babylon's barrier beach communities.
