DARIEN Conn. – Members of the Darien Winter Club laced up their skates and picked up their hockey sticks recently to face off in the 10th Annual ‘Darien Winter Club Charity Skate’ at the Terry Conners Ice Rink in Stamford.

The ‘Charity Skate’ is a Darien Winter Club tradition gives members the chance to have a great time playing ice hockey while raising money for a worthy cause, according to a press release. Since 2006, Person-to-Person has been the designated charity for this fundraising event. With this year’s event, the 10-year fundraising total is more than $62,000, according to a press release.

The annual event is organized by John Shaker who, with his wife, is a long-time supporter of Person-to-Person. The Terry Connors Ice Rink donates the ice time, so 100 percent of the donations from the players – and others – benefit Person-to-Person, according to a press release.
