The inaugural Broken Arrow Charity Classic hockey game in late December was a big success, according to former Estevan resident Todd Moroz, who is one of the house parents at the Broken Arrow Youth Ranch, and an organizer and player for the game.

The event raised an estimated $15,000 for the ranch, which is located outside of Willow Bunch in south-central Saskatchewan. Most of the revenues came through cash donations and a silent auction.

The game also created a lot of awareness for the ranch, Moroz said.

As for the contest itself, a team comprised of the Estevan Strippers and the Estevan Bruins Alumni defeated the Broken Arrow Bruins 9-6 at Affinity Place. Nearly 500 people attended the contest.

The Broken Arrow Bruins consisted of players from the midget AA Bruins program from 1983 to 1986.

Moroz said the game was a lot of fun, and the crowd had a great time.

"Everybody … was just wonderful and generous," said Moroz.

It was the first time in several years that he had played, and the first time he has been able to get together with some of his former midget AA teammates in about 25 years.

"One of the guys said 'This was the most fun I've had in years,'" said Moroz. "I've had some e-mails since the event, and a number of them are excited to do it again if they have the opportunity."

A number of people travelled from Estevan to Willow Bunch for the game, and most of the young people who currently reside at the ranch were in attendance, too.
