Sound Tigers host a good cause

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers will host a charity hockey game on Saturday at 4 p.m. between the Bridgeport and Worcester Fire Departments to benefit the Bridgeport Fallen Firefighters Fund.

“We are extremely excited and proud to hold this event,” said Bridgeport Firefighter Joe Lachioma. “We’ve worked with the Sound Tigers for years and this is a great way to honor those who have lost their lives while trying to save others.”

The game between the two respective fire departments will take place prior to the Sound Tigers 7 p.m. game on Saturday against the Worcester Sharks and will honor the families of Bridgeport Firefighter Michel Baik and Lt. Steven Velasquez. Baik and Velasquez were tragically killed in the line of duty on July 24, 2010 in Bridgeport.

The Bridgeport Fire Department will also be selling t-shirts and calendars as well as raffling off a Sound Tigers autographed jersey. All of the proceeds will go to the Bridgeport Fallen Firefighters Fund.
