Dawg Bowl XIV Recap

Dawg Bowl XIV is in the books, and it was nothing short of a smashing success! With a first responders-themed tournament this year there was the Guns and Hoses game Sunday morning where the firefighters beat the police 7-6. But more importantly than the game itself was the support from local first responders who gathered around as one of their own, Todd Clifford and his family were surprised with a check for $50,000 as he is in the battle for his life against pancreatic cancer.  

Clifford wasn’t the only family that was helped over the weekend. On Saturday Amy Moilanen dropped the puck at Saturday’s survivor game. What she didn’t realize was that she was also receiving $50,000. Amy lost her husband Craig, who was a firefighter, to lung cancer. The Moilanen family will now have some relief as life continues to move forward.  

Overall, the weekend raised over $350,000, and five total checks were given to families in need.  

There were NHL champions, NCAA champions, blind Hockey national players, sled hockey champions and so many more players playing in games or exhibitions all weekend long.  

Friendships were rekindled, new memories created, teammates honored, and a whole lot of fun as the hockey community came together to have a great time, but most importantly help those who needed it most. 

Thank you to all the sponsors, teams, and volunteers who were able to make this great event possible.  

Until next year!
