MPS Cup and Gala night

May 7, 2005

By Catherine Barr


The 3rd annual MPS Cup Fantasy Hockey Game and Gala took place last Saturday. Started by Kirsten Harkins and her husband, former NHLer Todd Harkins, the day benefits kids with MPS (Mucopolysaccharide), a rare disease affecting Kirsten's son and many others who are still hoping for a full-treatment program. The afternoon hockey game at the NS Winter Club was followed by a gala at the Sutton Place hotel where dinner and auction items helped raise even more money.
