The Angel Project, a Burlington-based not-for-profit founded by Lisette Kingo, hosted its first annual Angel Tournament at The Wave. Co-organizers Lisette and Olympic gold medallist hockey player and board member Becky Kellar invited Burlington Rep teams to play and to "skate for someone who can't." The Angel Project brings comfort, support and much more to patients living in the hospital with a variety of complex medical needs, who require 24 hour medical care. Most of these patients have few, if any, visitors. The Angel Project provides basic necessities, such as shampoo, shaving cream or a soft blanket, and also offers the patients a chance for an outing away from the hospital once a year. Other items, such as a wheelchair or a poster for a bedside, are also given as needed. Every dollar raised by the Angel Project goes directly to support these patients and their ongoing needs.
This year's tournament will take place on November 23rd at Nelson Arena
