Luc Robitaille Celebrity Shootout returns to PC
January 18, 2013
The Stanley Cup is coming to Park City.
This year’s Luc Robitaille Celebrity Shootout will have a little extra flash to it this year as Robitaille, the president of business operations for the NHL champion Los Angeles Kings, is bringing Lord Stanley’s Cup to the Park City Ice Arena on Sunday, Jan. 20.
But the cup won’t be the only celebrity at the arena on Sunday. Hollywood stars like Cuba Gooding Jr., Alan Thicke, Michael Vartan and Andie McDowell will be on hand, as will former hockey stars Pierre Turgeon, Rob Blake and Jeremy Roenick, among others.
The celebrity goalkeepers will be Ken Baker of E! Entertainment and Bobby Farrelly, a director/producer of films like "There’s Something About Mary" and "Dumb and Dumber."
The event benefits the Echoes of Hope charity, which helps at-risk and emancipated foster youths attend college. It was founded in 2005 by Robitaille and his wife, Stacia, after Hurricane Katrina demolished much of the Gulf Coast, destroying many youths’ chances to attend college.
Now, the charity helps children all across the country achieve their dreams of higher education.
