PITTSBURGH—The Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) North Campus Intercollegiate Ice Hockey Team will present a $3,000 check to representatives from Crisis Center North, a domestic violence counseling and resource center serving the northern and western communities of Allegheny County, on Tuesday, March 27, at 12:30 p.m. in the CCAC–North Campus Atrium, 8701 Perry Highway, McCandless. CCAC–North Campus Athletic Director Chuck Bell will make the presentation on behalf of the team.
The team raised the funds in connection with its fourth annual benefit hockey game held February 11, 2012 at the Mt. Lebanon Recreation Center. During the game, CCAC ice hockey players faced off against members of the Pittsburgh Celebrity Hockey Team—a team which was coached by former Penguin Randy Hillier and included Penguins announcer Steve Mears, Pittsburgh City Councilman Bill Peduto, WPXI-TV personalities Brandon Hudson and Courtney Brennan and WDVE-FM radio personality Mike Prisuta, among others. The Pittsburgh Celebrity Hockey Team scored in the last 20 seconds to win, 10–9.
In the past four years, the CCAC–North Campus Intercollegiate Ice Hockey Team has raised over $10,000 for local charities.
