Hansons Put On The Foil For Charity

The Hanson Brothers may have finally met their match.

During the first intermission of a charity game, the Little Chiefs, comprised mostly of Hersey Junior Bears Mites, took the ice and taught the lovable thugs from the classic movie Slap Shot a thing or two about rough and tumble hockey.

More importantly, the event attracted 450 fans and raised $10,700 through a huge team effort. The kids enjoyed customized jerseys, a meet and greet with the Hanson Brothers and plenty of autographs.  

“The Hanson Brothers were fantastic with the kids and really added to our event,” said Rob Ziemba, founder of “Play It Again” for charity. “The kids loved the Hansons, their glasses and asked them over and over – if they were really brothers. The parents still can’t believe who their kids skated with. What a memory.”

It was all part of an exhibition game with the Red Robin Robin’s and the Harrisburg Harbour House Crabs at the Klick Lewis Arena in Annville, Pa., with the proceeds benefitting the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition.   

The event was the fourth Pennsylvania appearance by the Hanson Brothers, who have helped the Palmyra, Pa. based “Play it Again” for Charity organization raise more than $30,000 for the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition prior to the 2009 event.
