Ike Eisenhour, executive director of Delaware Shore Field Hockey Inc., recently presented a check to Easterseals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore’s Community Relations Coordinator Linda Forte. The annual Hockey4Haxton event raised $1,100 for Easterseals to help provide therapy services for people with disabilities in Sussex County.
Hockey4Haxton is an annual indoor tournament in memory of Amanda Haxton, a member of the Delaware Shore Field Hockey community and a former athlete at Cape Henlopen High School and East Stroudsburg University. Amanda received services at Easterseals in Georgetown as a result of an accident. Donations from the event benefit the Easterseals Children’s Therapy program in Georgetown and the Hockey4Haxton Scholarship Fund for outstanding hockey players.
