- The Washington Times - Wednesday, July 25, 2007


Put Cancer On Ice has announced the proceeds from this month’s charity hockey game will be donated to Hockey Fights Cancer in memory of Dave Fay.

Fay, a longtime hockey writer for The Washington Times, died July 17 after a 12-year battle with cancer. He was 67.

“Each month, Put Cancer On Ice organizes a pick-up hockey game fielding Washington Capitals fans in a Maryland vs. Virginia format,” said Gavin Toner, one of the co-chairs of Put Cancer On Ice. “All in good fun, there are a multitude of playing levels from the beginner to the advanced to the advanced in age.”

This month’s event is Sunday at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington at 2 p.m.

The proceeds of the charity events usually go to the American Cancer Society. But money from Sunday’s event will go to Hockey Fights Cancer in Fay’s name, per the request of Fay’s wife, Pat, and their family.

Admission is free, but donations are welcome.
