The west parking lot at the Glenview Ice Center was the place to be this weekend! Scores of Stars and Jr. Stars families stopped by to grab a brat, hot dog or burger while meeting other player and their families, along with coaches, board members and new Stars off-ice coach Casey Tiesman from Tactic Sports Performance. It was a terrific way to start the season.
Headlining this year's event was the 3Emmez live rock 'n' roll band. Dominic, Anthony and George Emme played four sets throughout the BBQ, wowing the crowd with hits from Metallica, The Beatles and more! Check them out at www.3emmez.com.
The Stars extend a big thank you to Melanie Alghrim for organizing the BBQ and to all of our "Grill Guys": John Alghrim, Jack Benecke, Pat Long, Alfonso Ramirez, Chris Jones and Drew Weller.
Capping off the BBQ was a highly-successful food drive benefiting the Northfield Township Food Pantry that netted more than 2,000 donated items. Read more about the food drive here.
