Supporting a Great Cause

On Friday August 15, 2014, a huge crowd attended the sold-out 3rd Annual Ludzy's (Steve Ludzik) Celebrity Roast in Niagara Falls, Ontario. In the coals this year was Hockey Hall of Fame member Phil Esposito.

A number of former NHL players were on-hand to help raise funds of The Steve Ludzik Centre for Parkinson's Rehab. As noted in the program, "in 2012 Steve revealed that he had been fighting Parkinson's disease for 12 years."

The event was a huge success with $132,537 being added to the cause.
