Port Huron goalies contribute to charity

The Port Huron Fighting Falcons are proud to announce that over $800 was raised in the “Saves for Charity” program with E&A Credit Union. E&A made a $1 donation for each save made in 2010-11 home games.

Both the Port Huron Minor Hockey Association and the Diabetes Care Educational Association will be presented with donations of over $400 each as a result of the Saves for Charity program.

“E&A Credit Union is very happy to contribute to the Diabetes Care Educational Association and the Port Huron Minor Hockey Association. The Saves for Charity program is such a great way for E&A Credit Union and the Port Huron Fighting Falcons to give back to our community,” commented Janice Rose, President/CEO of E&A Credit Union.

Six goaltenders made saves in home games for the Fighting Falcons in their inaugural season in the North American Hockey League. Tyler Last led the way with 299 saves in 11 home appearances, while Peter Megariotis was second with 198 saves in his seven starts.

Alex Cantrell, Mason Murovich, Salvatorre Tecci and Anthony Jacaruso also did their part in raising money for these local charities.
