Posted: Updated:


PASCO, Wash. -- US Cellular hosted a fundraising event with the help of Tri-City Americans hockey team and youngsters from the Boys & Girls Club of Benton and Franklin Counties Saturday.  Each player was teamed up with a child from the club and build a gingerbread house to be auctioned off for $15 each at the store on 5024 Road 68 in Pasco.  All proceeds go to the Boys & Girls Club.

AMS Forward, Patrick Holland says, "It's nice to just kind of ground yourself with the community and show everyone who you are and not just on the ice but off the ice as well."

AMS Right wing,Connor Rankin says " all the kids support us in all our games.  It's good to give back and it kind of reminds us of when we were kids ourselves ... We looked up to the guys and its just good to give back and help them out."
