December 30th marks the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL) All Star Game.
This highly anticipated events on the GOJHL Calendar this season is set
to take place in Kitchener at the Kinsmen Arena at 4:00pm, following
the 1:00pm Prospects Game earlier that day. The All Star game will
feature the best players from the Golden Horseshoe, Midwestern and
Western Conferences who promise to put on a fantastic show.
The Midwestern Conference have graciously volunteered this season to
host this fantastic day, producing plenty of opportunity for fans across
Ontario to catch their favourite GOJHL All Star players.
Each year for the All Star Game the GOJHL partners with a charitable
organization to help out a worthy cause. The Midwestern Conference has
selected to donate to the Frank Santarossa Scholarship fund. Every year,
a select group of players who have received outstanding academic
achievements while playing in the GOJHL are honored with this
scholarship set up in the name of the late Frank Santarossa.
Frank was a young aspiring hockey player with the Cambridge Winter
Hawks in 1986. He lost his life in a tragic car accident on December
26th of that same year. Now in its 24th year, the scholarship has raised
close to $70,000 in contributions to players from the GOJHL.
All are welcome to attend this fantastic once a year event being held
at the Kinsmen Arena in Kitchener. Game time is set for 4:00pm and
ticket prices are $10.00 for adults, $8.00 for seniors and students,
$6.00 for children under 12 years-old and free admission for children
under the age of six. Prior to the All Star Game the GOJHL Prospects
