This year Ike Eisenhour, Executive Director, Delaware Shore Field Hockey, Inc., presented a $900 check to Easterseals Community Relations Coordinator, Linda Forte.

“We are grateful for our 15-year partnership with Hockey4Haxton and continuing to honor the memory of Amanda Haxton,” Forte said. “Even in the midst of a pandemic and having to move the tournament outside, the community was able to come together to support Easterseals and our mission.”
Hockey4Haxton is an annual indoor tournament in memory of Amanda Haxton, a member of the Delaware Shore Field Hockey community and a former athlete at Cape Henlopen High School and East Stroudsburg University. As a result of an accident, Amanda received services at Easterseals in Georgetown. Donations from the event benefit the Easterseals Children’s Therapy program in Georgetown and the Hockey4Haxton Scholarship fund for outstanding hockey players. For more information, visit:
