FISHING FOR A GOOD CAUSE
false
Fishing reels, chartered boats and an endless supply of hockey stories were on tap at the first annual Sabres Alumni Fishing Derby, sponsered by Labatt Blue, held on Tuesday, July 18 at Krull Park.

A total of 20 of the finest charter captains and their boats navigated Lake Ontario in the one-day event.

Such former Sabres as Larry Playfair, Rob Ray, Lindy Ruff, Grant Ledyard, Rick Martin and Matthew Barnaby were in attendance as the Alumni raised funds to benefit the Kevin Guest House. 

Current forward Adam Mair and play-by-play announcer Rick Jeanneret were also in attendance.

"We had 18 of our guys show  up and we were blessed with great weather," said Playfair.  "For Rob Ray's first chairmanship of this fishing derby, it went extremely well."

The Kevin Guest House is a safe haven for families who are experiencing stressful situations with loved ones undergoing cancer treatment at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

The house was established to provide temporary, safe refuge for patients and their families at a nominal fee.

Kevin Guest House has been welcoming guests to our community for over 35 years and provides an atmosphere of caring and hospitality which helps families focus on their loved-ones, without the stress of finding temporary, affordable accommodations near local health care facilities and services.

This "home away from home" serves more than 1,200 people each year that might otherwise have to endure substandard accommodations at a very difficult time in their lives.  Find out more about the Kevin Guest House at their website, http://www.kevinguesthouse.com/.
