SPRINGFIELD, NJ – On Friday June 9, the 9th Annual Charity Hockey Game of Jonathan Dayton High School will be played at Union Sports Arena from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.  This year, for the first time, the event will honor the memory of Daniel Triano. 

Dan was a student, friend and teammate of many at Jonathan Dayton High School and Springfield Township.  Last year he was killed in a fatal car accident. 

Funds raised from the event will go toward a scholarship in Dan’s memory, as well as a donation to the New Jersey Dare Devils, a hockey organization for children with special needs that Dan was passionate about.

Dan was a student at Union County Vo-Tech’s Academy of Information Technology, a member of the Jonathan Dayton hockey team, and a long time New Jersey Youth Devils Player.

The Annual Alumni Hockey Game has become a tradition in Springfield and has enjoyed consistent support from the local business community and families.  This year event organizers hope for a strong showing from the community after not having it last year. 

An alumni hockey game involving past hockey team members of Jonathan Dayton & David Brearley High Schools will be the main event.  Many of the players were teammates of Dan.  Tickets are $3 in advance and $5 at the door.

Please contact Zoe Frei at 973-666-1627 or to purchase tickets, make a donation, or get more information about the event.

Organizers are hoping for a good turnout and welcome all donations.  Certain donation levels will be recognized.

A $500 donation is a Gold Member.  The contributor’s name will appear in the program and announcements will be made during the game.  Also, a sign will be hung at the arena with the contributor’s name.

A $250 donation is a Silver Member.  The contributor’s name will appear in the program and announcements will be made during the game.
