Wilmington's police and firefighters have faced off on the ice for the fourth year in a row to benefit a local charity, and for the first time, the firefighters won.
Red and blue jersey's darted around the rink at the Skating Club of Wilmington on Saturday night as hundreds of people packed the stands. Tickets were $5, and the proceeds went to the Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation – that's a B+ that means "be positive," not a B+ like the grade.
The foundation supports kids who are battling cancer – it was started by the family of a local 14-year-old who died in 2007.
Each year that the game has been played, it has benefitted the foundation, said Jean Marie Jordan, who organizes the game with her husband, firefighter Griff Jordan.
The lengths the foundation goes to to help kids and their families, "it leaves me speechless," Jordan said.
