On Sept 7, 2011, 44 lives were lost in the worst tragedy in professional hockey history. A plane carrying crew members, hockey personnel, coaches and players of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team went down, breaking the hearts of their loved ones near and far.
Big Dreams Children Foundation is raising money for the widows and children left behind by this tragic accident.
Our first fundraiser for this project took place on November 13, 2011, at Bossa Nova in Pittsburgh. It was hosted by Evgeni Malkin. The event was very successful. Thank you to all who participated. Donations benefiting this cause are still being accepted through our PayPal Donation link.
