First Lake Forest Ice Hockey Cross-Town Classic Hosted by NSUW Youth Board
North Shore United Way’s (NSUW) Youth Board is proud to host the first Lake Forest Ice Hockey Cross-Town Classic between the Lake Forest Varsity Scouts and the Lake Forest Academy Varsity Caxys on Sunday, January 22 at 5:30 p.m. at the Winter Club of Lake Forest. All proceeds from the evening will go towards the Board.
“The Youth Board is an amazing organization to be a part of because it enables students to collaborate with their peers to make a real impact in our community,” said Youth Board President Amanda Zhou. “The Cross-Town Classic is especially exciting for me because the idea for the event came entirely from the students and I’m very grateful that our community has been extremely supportive.”
The NSUW Youth Board is a committee comprised of local students ages 12-18 who actively fundraise and volunteer in the community. The Board is dedicated to completing service projects for local non-profits and raising funds to support the Jean Youngs Baddeley Fund, which provides grants to programs serving the crisis needs of youth in our community.
“The Youth Board is a great way for us to engage the next generation in our community,” said Lorelei Beaucaire, Chief Professional Officer at North Shore United Way. “Students are learning about the real needs across our region and helping address those needs through volunteer projects, fundraising and advocacy. It’s inspiring to have the talents of young people — like Youth Board President Amanda Zhou and Vice President Katie Schott — helping United Way make a difference in our communities.”
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. at Winter Club of Lake Forest at956 North Sheridan Road. The evening includes Mites on Ice, Captains Shoot-Out, “Chuck the Puck” competition, as well as premier event merchandise sales. Parking is limited; please consider carpooling or using the train station’s north parking lot.
