Blue Point Brewing is sponsoring its first annual Toast Your Hero hockey classic to benefit Project9Line and the Long Island Warriors.
Blue Point’s hockey team, the Blue Point Bastards, will take on local veteran-led hockey program, the Long Island Warriors, for this inaugural holiday classic.
The two teams will face off at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 12 at the Northwell Health Ice Center at Eisenhower Park.
Tickets are $30 and include a Toast Your Hero t-shirt and a complimentary pint of Blue Point brew at Garden Social in East Meadow. Admission to the hockey game only costs $20.
Project9Line’s mission is to support all veterans including but not limited to those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, by providing venues for them to communicate their experiences and express themselves. The nonprofit offers veteran networking, programs and workshops.
The Long Island Warriors hockey program is a nonprofit, volunteer-run program that aims to provide a hockey team for military veterans, active military, reserves and their family members on Long Island. The team was created to strengthen veteran community engagement and provide veteran camaraderie to return to civilian life.
