John Ledecky, one of the co-owners of the NY Islanders hockey team has donated $50,000 to Ice Hockey in Harlem, a program dedicated to providing free hockey instruction to children in Harlem. This contribution builds upon the $27,000 previously given by Ledecky to honor the late advocate for Ice Hockey in Harlem, John Tonneli.
Ice Hockey Harlem began in 1987 with 40 participants, who attended classroom sessions to learn about the game and skate on the ice once a week. The group would take the ice at Lasker Rink on the north end of Central Park, where volunteers taught and trained the youngsters the fundamentals of the game.
