Porcini Night - New Haven - May 17
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
216 Crown Street
New Haven,  CT 06510
Porcini International is sponsoring an intimate evening with Pat LaFontaine on Thursday, May 17th at The Ballroom @ LoRicco Tower in New Haven, CT. All proceeds benefit Companions in Courage Foundation.
This promises to be a rare night with one of the Top-100 hockey players of all time. The American-born LaFontaine, will share tales from his NHL and Olympic career, as well as stories about his charity - Companions in Courage Foundation. The not-for-profit builds interactive rooms in children's hospitals across North America - including one built through the Masotta Family Fund at Connecticut Children's Medical Center in Hartford.
LaFontaine enjoyed a 15-year career in the NHL. Last year, he was invited to the Vatican for the Sport at the Service of Humanity conference. That has led to hockey's Declaration of Principles - an effort to "develop, promote and support positive changes in sport's culture."
Tickets are available for just $50 and will include hors d'oeuvres and drinks. The event is limited to just 200, and will sell out quickly. Auction items will be available that night. Please select "Donate to this Event" (include $50 per ticket) and include "Porcini" in the Message box.
