Chance 2 Play

Chance 2 PlaySometimes we all need a little help. When NHL’er Arron Asham was growing up, members of the community were there for him and supported his efforts on and off the ice.

Each year Arron hosts a Charity Golf Tournament with the proceeds going directly to the Arron’s Chance 2 Play Hockey program. The goal of the program is to provide hockey opportunities for area children despite the difficult economic circumstances of their families.
