Play Like Jackson Foundation
Red Wing’s player Joe Kocur’s charity foundation softball series event
On Saturday August 24th, 2013 members from our charity group attended former Red Wing’s player Joe Kocur’s charity foundation softball series. The games played in Highland, MI benefitted multiple charities in the area, and this years series “Play Like Jackson” was played in honor of Fenton’s Jackson Gangwar whom lost his life this past April at the age of 12.
Thousands of spectators came out to watch the games that were played by teams from the Fenton Fire Dept, Highland Twp, Whitelake Twp and Milford police and fire departments.
Each team had a chance to play the celebrity team which included names such as Joe Kocur, Darren McCarty, Chris Osgood, Dino Ciccarelli, Juri Fischer, Dave Coulier and more with Mickey Redmond announcing a play-by-play. There were plenty of events for the kids such as bounce houses, small carnival rides and an ice cream eating contest.
