Last Thursday, it was the 2nd annual SmashFest that was held at SteamWhistle Brewery. It was hosted by NHL player, Dominic Moore, who wants to organize this special event to raise awareness on Concussion Research and Rare Cancer Research. In the first year of SmashFest, the objective was to raise money for concussion research. But in this second year, Dominic Moore also wants to raise awareness to rare cancer because his wife, Katie Moore passed away due to a rare form of cancer. Thus, he founded the Katie Moore Foundation.
The night went quite well as NHL players such as Phil Kessel, David Clarkson, Logan Couture, Martin St. Louis, Kevin Weekes, George Parros, Cody Hodgson and many more were on hand to show their support to Dominic’s charity but also a chance to mix and mingle with fans, thanking them for their donation and support for such a great cause.
All-in-all, over $100,000 raised for concussion research and cancer research via Katie Moore Foundation. This was a great success! Everyone had a great time and it allows fans to see the ping-pong skills from the various NHL players. Stephane Veilleux was the ping-pong champ!
See you next year! For more information on how to make donations to the Katie Moore Foundation and ticket information for next year’s SmashFest, click here.
