What is it: The Hockey for Habitat Gaming Fundraiser is a Playstation NHL20 TOURNAMENT that replaced our Hockey for Habitat ball hockey fundraiser that was cancelled due to Covid-19 concerns. THIS EXCITING tournament will support our mission to provide decent and affordable housing through our new home construction and home repair projects for families and individuals in Wood County, Ohio.

How does it work? Played on Playstation 4 using the NHL20 hockey video game. Participants must have both to join. Participants will play in an 8-round (depending on number of participants), 1 vs 1 single elimination NHL20 game. Winners move to the next round until a Champion is crowned!
