Michele Berry didn’t want to jinx a fundraising drive by the Fredericton Mr. Automotive Bantam AAA Caps by publicly stating a financial goal.

But she admits now she was hoping Cross-Check Cancer, in support of two families affected by cancer, would raise “maybe $5,000 to $8,000.”

Berry underestimated the community’s benevolence for the fathers of Caps forwards Owen Tran and Zander Best — Dr. Peter Tran and James Best, who are are undergoing cancer treatments.

The proceeds from Sunday’s game against the North West Pionniers at York Arena generated a whopping $16,400, which will go towards the two families, as well as as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

Peter stayed for the whole game and James made it almost to the end,” Berry said. “They were extremely grateful and I think had a really good time.”

An estimated crowd of 700 made for a memorable day for the players.

Berry, who spearheaded the fundraiser along with fellow hockey moms Lisa Brewer and Angela Leaman, said her son, defenceman Ben Soke, “thought it was really cool to have that many people there,” she said.

I asked him ‘Did it make it better or did it make you nervous?’ He said, ‘No, it made it way better.’”

The 50/50 winners, Kari and Peter Clark, donated the $689 prize back to the event.
