On Monday, Jan. 17th, we have our annual Green Cup game vs. Duxbury.
This is our 13th year doing this event. The day starts with a series of youth hockey games, Marshfield vs. Duxbury, along with a 1st responders game, and then a JV game and finally the varsity game.
The day is more than just hockey as the home team gets to select the charity we are raising funds for.
This year the Charity is : Cops for kids with cancer, as well as the Marshfield Food Pantry.
we ask players to donate money and have raffles to help raise funds.
Below is the information we send to all involved.
Our 13th Annual Green Cup event will once again bring together Marshfield and Duxbury on Martin Luther King Day to play a series of hockey games that not only fosters the natural rivalry between the two neighboring towns, but also involves all the players in raising funds and awareness for a charity of our choice. This season’s charity is Cops for Kids with Cancer. This years charity was chosen in memory of David Moeykens and Danny Sheehan both whom left us far too soon this past year from brain cancer. They both had a significant impact on our community and touched more lives than they ever realized. Both David and Danny’s families continue to raise money for Cops for Kids for Cancer. We also will be playing for Ellie Niland. Ellie is a 3 year old shining star who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma two years ago. We are grateful to report that she currently is in remission. It would be an honor for our Green Cup Charity Event to be able to make a donation in in David’s, Danny’s and Ellie’s names!
The Green Cup Event will consist of players from mites up to the respective varsity high school level. The festivities will begin at the Hobomock area with the first drop of the puck at 8:10am. Don’t miss out on the Marshfield vs Duxbury First Responders game too at 9:30!
