EXPERIENCE A ONE-OF-A-KIND CHARITY HOCKEY TOURNAMENT
Be drafted. Play in four guaranteed games. Enjoy buffet-style breakfast and lunch. Win great prizes. And best of all; you'll be helping to give back in your community because 100% of net proceeds are donated in Mary’s name to Canadian Blood Services!
The Mary Parkinson Charity Classic is a work of passion.
We are a one-of-a-kind single day non-profit hockey tournament donating net proceeds to Canadian Blood Services. Founded in 2018 by Julian & Krysta Peticca, the tournament is a way to remember Krysta’s aunt Mary Parkinson after she passed away at age 59 in December 2016.
A true community ambassador, Mary dedicated 25-years of service to the Richmond Hill Hockey Association and made a positive impact in the lives of thousands of children. We celebrate and continue Mary's legacy through this tournament while raising funds and awareness for Canadian Blood Services.
We donated $3,300.00 to Canadian Blood Services in 2018!
And we intend on surpassing that amount Sunday, April 19, 2020 at the second annual Mary Parkinson Charity Classic.
