The Batavia Ramparts held their 3rd annual Collin Crane Memorial Hockey Tournament this morning at Falleti Ice Arena, with all proceeds benefiting the Collin Crane Memorial Scholarship fund.
Collin was an avid hockey player who died in an auto accident in December of 2012.
The event included three hockey games, an open skate, pizza, hotdogs and drinks along with prizes, an auction and raffle.
Falleti Ice Arena today hosted a fundraiser for the Collin Crane Memorial Fund.
The fund provides scholarships to deserving local hockey players. This was the second year for the fundraiser, which honors the memory of Collin Crane, a Batavia teen killed in an auto accident in December 2012.
The event featured a full day of hockey, including a match involving a team comprised of Crane's teammates, as well as a chance auction.
After their game, members of Crane's team held a pray for their teammate.
The Second Annual Collin Crane Memorial event to raise money to help young hockey players is at 9 a.m. Saturday March 15 at Falleti Ice Rink, located at 22 Evans St. in the City of Batavia.
