The Flyers Alumni is honoring the organization's 50th anniversary with a special gift for Flyers owner, founder and chairman Ed Snider.
The Alumni Association will donate $2 million for the construction of a new rink for the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation. The rink will be named in Snider's honor and also feature the name of the the Alumni organization.
A portion of the $2 million comes from fundraisers and Alumni events. The effort began last Friday when the Alumni Association held an Alumni game in Reading, generating $80,000 of charity funds, $45,000 of which went to Flyers Charities.
