First Annual Emergency Services Cup
A Great Success!

Last night at the Community Center, the first annual Emergency Service Cup was held.  It was a hockey game, Woodbridge Township's Finest (the Police) against Woodbridge Township's Bravest (Fire and EMS).

The game was held to benefit the Relay for Life.  You can see the Relay for Life team page created for this event if you go HERE.

The game, which was sold out, opened up with great fanfare and ceremony,including a performance by the Middlesex County Police and Fire Pipes and Drums.  The National Anthem was performed by Kelly Peterson, Woodbridge Idol 2011.  Speeches and announcements honored Veterans and members of the Armed Forces because it was Armed Forces day, and Cancer Survivors, as the event benefitted the Relay for Life.

Then the game was on - and it was quite an exciting game, ending in a victory for the Bravest, who scored 9 - 5 over the Finest.

Door prizes and a Score-O competition also added to the evening's excitement!

In the end, the real winner was the American Cancer Society, who will receive 100% of the evening's proceeds.  So far, that figure is in excess of $2,700.00.

If you were there, I hope you had a great time!  Here are a few more photos of the game itself...
