Former Wisconsin Badger and current Los Angeles Kings defenseman Davis Drewiske is holding a 3 on 3 hockey tournament Friday, July 15th in Hudson, WI with proceeds going to benefit the Huntington's Disease Society of America. If your not familiar with Huntington's, it's a very serious illness that former Badger Jake Dowell's father has. Here is an article done by the CBS National News on the Dowell family back from 2004 on Jake getting tested for Huntington's.
I think it takes a pretty awesome friend of Jake's like Davis Drewiske to put an event on like this to help raise money for Huntingtons. It's not too late to get your kid into the 3 on 3 tournament and it sounds sweet. Each 3 on 3 team will get to play with an NHL hockey player. Players scheduled to attend: Jake Dowell (Dallas Stars), Ryan McDonagh (New York Rangers), Derek Stepan (New York Rangers), Adam Burish (Dallas Stars), Tom Gilbert (Edmonton Oilers), Brian Elliott (St. Louis Blues), Blake Geoffrion (Nashville Predators), Matt Greene (L.A. Kings), Peter Herold (L.A. Kings), Kevin Westgarth (L.A. Kings), and Scott Parse (L.A. Kings) as well as obviously Davis Drewiske of the L.A. Kings.
Additionally, there is going to be a live band (which I hear is supposed to be awesome), an auction, a raffle, as well as a food and beer tent. I would encourage anyone that can make it over to Hudson July 15th to do so. Obviously in addition to meeting some NHL stars and former Badger National Champions, raising money for Huntington's which is a disease that hits so close to home with one of our own former Badger parents should really be cool.
