Community skates to support family of 3 kids killed in fire


RELEASING A STATEMENT SAYING HE WILL BE HELD FOR OBSERVATION AS A PRECAUTION. THREE KIDS DIE IN A FIRE IN HAMILTON. THE WLWT NEWS 5’S JACKIE CONGEDO REPORTS TONIGHT, THE OWNER OF ONE OF THEIR FAVORITE PLACES IS LENDING A HELPING HAND AND PLENTY OF OTHER THINGS, TOO THE OWNER OF SKATING ON MAIN HERE IN HAMILTON SAYS JUST BY WORD OF MOUTH ALONE THEY WERE ABLE TO RAISE $600 FOR THIS FAMILY, AND THAT WAS PFER THE DOORS EVEN OPENED HERE TONIGHT. THE MUSIC IS BLASTING, THE LIGHTS ARE SWIRLING, AND THE SKATES ARE SOARING. THANK YOU. ALL IN MEMORY OF THREE LITTLE ONES WHO WERE HERE EVERY WEEKEND. I KNEW ALL THREE OF THEM. IN SUPPORT OF THEIR FAMILY, LEFT TO CARRY ON WITHOUT THEM AFTER A HOUSE FIRE TOOK THE LIVES OF ALL THREE. THEY DON’T HAVE ANYTHING. THEY LOST THEIR HOUSE, THEIR CARS, THEIR CHILDREN. I MEAN, IT WAS DEVASTATING. I SAW, YOU KNOW, WHO IT WAS, THE THREE OF THEM, IT JUST HIT ME AND I SAID WE GOT TO DO SOMETHING. SO POLICE OFFICER JASON HOLMES AND RINK OWNER PUT THEIR HEADS TOGETHERS. WE ALL HAVE KIDS. WE FEEL FOR THEM. THIS IS OUR WAY TO GIVE BACK TO THEM AND HELP OUT WITH THE TRAGEDY. HE WAS FIRST ON SCENE ON DECEMBER 12TH. A FEELING OF HELPLESSNESS. THE FIRE WAS SO BAD THAT WE COULDN’T HELP THEM. I FIGURED I COULD HELP THE FAMILY TONIGHT WITH THE FUND RARES. HE COLLECTED EVERYTHING FROM GITCHT CARDS TO A SIGNED KEN ANDERSON JERSEY FOR RAFFLE AND SILENT AUCTION, THEN ADDED 9 DONE NATED MEALS. THE ADMISSION PRICE WAS $5. IT WILL GO INTO THE BANK ACCOUNT FOR THOSE GUYS. THEY WERE REALLY CLOSE TO ME. IT’S A LITTLE SOMETHING THEY CAN DO TO HELP MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE. MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE CAME TO SKATE AND RAISE MONEY TONIGHT, FAR SURPASSING THE RINK’S GOAL OF DONATING $5 HOOFMENT IN HAMILTON, JACKIE CONGEDO, WLWT NEWS 5.
