Inner City Education and the Chicago Blackhawks Make Warrior Wishes Come True!

March 6, 2019

Operation Warrior Wishes would like to thank Inner City Education and the Chicago Blackhawks for helping make Warrior Wishes come true at the 10th annual Brent Seabrook Celebrity Ice Bowl!

Veterans Tony Thomas, Mark Toppel, Vinnie Trentz and DJ Hale had the once in a lifetime opportunity to “Bowl with the Hawks.”

In fact, their team paired up with Hawks defenseman Connor Murphy and won the tournament!

Marine Master Gunnery SGT Michael Abragan, Marine SSG Angelica Jaime and Army Veteran Mike Way also had the opportunity to join us and meet some of their favorite Hawks players too!

It was an unforgettable experience for all of the warriors!  We couldn’t have made it all possible without Brad from the Inner City Education Program.

The Inner City Educationm (ICE) Program is a Chicago-based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation.  ICE was established in 2003 to help low income children obtain educational and hockey opportunities not otherwise available to them.  They are doing some amazing things for some amazing children!  It was an absolute honor to have had the chance to meet some of the kids in the program.  We encourage you to support and learn more about their mission at
