The third-annual Echo Food Shelf Hockey Spectacular, which took place Aug. 26-27 at All Seasons Arena in Mankato, raised a total of $28,432 and 1,340 pounds of food and supplies for Echo Food Shelf in Mankato. The primary event goal was to raise $22,000 in 2022.

“We are extremely grateful to all of our sponsors, participants and community members for their generosity,” says Steve Neitge, one of the tournament organizers. “To surpass our goal by 38 percent is such a fantastic accomplishment. Every single person who contributed helped make a difference for people in need, and everyone should be proud of that fact.”

The organizers are already planning to hold the event for a fourth year in late-August 2023.
