Thirty-eight thousand dollars is going toward community support services in Haliburton County. This year’s Scotty Morrison Charity Hockey Tournament raised the money. Executive Director with the Haliburton Highlands Health Services Foundation, Dale Walker says they were happy to see all the support come through.

The event is held every year to raise money for a local charity, and this year, Walker explains where the funds are going.

The weekend included 18 teams from across the province compete for the title. Walker says this year they added a Pub Night and Hot Stove Lounge on the Friday where former NHL players and referees talked about their careers and told their stories from the NHL. Walker says from the feedback they heard, the night was a success.

The annual tournament is expected to continue next year in Haliburton.
