Sports fans find their seats behind the glass as women’s community hockey teams hit the ice for Face Off Against Breast Cancer at Middlebury’s Memorial Sports Center. Hailing from across the state, these ferocious females team up for the annual tournament to raise funds for the Cancer Patient Support Foundation. With the Middlebury Otters and Middlebury Mystix as their hosts, squads go head-to-head in competitive, recreational and novice divisions. Saturday’s action continues long past the buzzer when players, friends and families fête $500,000 raised in the benefit’s 17-year history at the Half Million Strong celebration. Live music, libations and raffle drawings on the sports center grounds make for an epic party with a purpose.
Price: Funds raised for players; donations for spectators.
