    Last night, The Congressional Hockey Challenge hosted a pre-game reception to give thanks to this year's players and sponsors. The highlight of the night was when Senator John Kerry, who will be one of the players at this Sunday's 4th Annual Congressional Hockey Challenge, walked into the reception with the Stanley Cup.

    A team of federal lawmakers, congressional staff and administration officials will face off against federal lobbyists in a friendly, yet competitive, game of ice hockey benefiting the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) in support of an entirely new academic scholarship for at-risk youth and participants of the NHL’s Hockey is for Everyone (HIFE) initiative.

    The Congressional Hockey Challenge will be this Sunday, March 4, at the Verizon Center at 1:30pm. [Details]
