Wow. Heading into year 4 already? We really can’t thank you all enough for all the tremendous support we’ve gotten with this event. We hope to see you all again this year and make some more money for the MDA!

This year’s game will take place on March 19. We’ll be facing off against the Metro FOOLS once again at the Mount Lebanon Recreation Center. Puck drops at 6:00pm. $7 for adults, $3 for the kids. We’ll have an update on our sponsors and raffle prizes in the near future.

The planning stages for next year’s charity game are starting now! If you or someone you know would like to be involved please feel free to let us know. Leave us a comment, send us an email, heck – send a carrier pigeon if you have to! Smoke signals work as well, just stay tuned for more info over the next few months. Tentative date is set for March of 2010!

Apologies for the extended delay

March 25, 2009

Thanks again to everybody that contributed to the Charity Game. The Pharaohs took home the W, 5 – 1 over the Metro FOOLS, but more importantly, we raised over $1500 for the MDA! This year’s game totally blew away our expectations and we want to thank everybody for making this a huge success.

Some pictures of the event can be found here and here.

Big plans on the way for year three. Stay tuned.

In non-charity news, your Howlers Pharaohs are off to a 2 – 0 start in regular season action. Our next game is March 31 at Ice Castle in Castle Shannon.

Some last minute updates

February 25, 2009

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will not be taking on the Pittsburgh Celebrity Hockey Team this weekend. The team has, however, made a generous donation to the MDA on behalf of the event, and for that we thank them.

The game will go on as scheduled thanks to Nick Sohyda and the Pittsburgh Metro FOOLS. The Metro FOOLS were eager to jump in a help us out with this event, so we hope everybody will still come out and catch the game and support the MDA.
