On Thursday night, Dominic Moore held a charity ping pong event to raise money for concussions and rare forms of cancer.
The event raised over $100,000 and Moore, in an NHLPA statement, said “Smashfest 2013 was an epic night. I truly am proud and grateful that this year’s event raised over $100,000, which will go to concussion research and will help rare cancers through the Katie Moore Foundation. I would like to thank my fellow players, sponsors, NHLPA staff, and all our guests for an amazing evening.”
From the NHLPA release “Throughout the night, those in attendance had a chance to bid on live and silent auction items, enjoy some food and beverage, socialize, and watch a bit of a ping-pong. Over 600 people attended the event, which included 25 current and former NHL players, fans and over 40 credentialed media. When the paddles were put to rest, more than $100,000 was raised for The Katie Moore Foundation, which was established in honour of Dominic’s late wife, Katie, and various brain injury concussion research foundations.”
