BOYS' HOCKEY: Amity to host fundraiser for fire victims
The Martino family of Orange needs help and the Amity boys’ hockey team is pitching in with a fundraiser.
The Spartans will be hosting a fundraiser at its SCC interdivision game with Cheshire on Thursday at the Bennett Rink at 6:30 p.m. to benefit the family of former Spartans player Eddie Martino of Orange whose family lost their home and belongings in a fire on Jan. 20.
Martino was a forward with the Spartans boys’ hockey team and graduated in 1984.
“Eddie Martino was a talented, hard-working forward for Amity when he played,” Amity coach Gary Lindgren said. “He had a lot of speed and was a very intense, physical player.”
According to Lindgren a fire started in the middle of the night and the cause is still to be determined.
Raffle tickets with proceeds going to the family will be sold during the game.
Donations can also be sent to The Amity Hockey Parent’s Association, 25 Newton Rd., Woodbridge, CT., 06525 and put it to the attention of Gary Lindgren.
