Clarkson University and Canton-Potsdam Hospital faculty and staff raised $1,163 for the Potsdam Educational Opportunities Fund at a charity hockey game at Cheel Arena.About 150 fans gathered in Cheel Arena on Feb. 22 to watch a team of Clarkson faculty and staff face off against a team of CPH staff. Some members of the Clarkson pep band were also in attendance to cheer on the teams.

Fans in attendance were treated to an evenly matched, exciting game. CPH came back from a 3-2 deficit in the third period, scoring two unanswered goals to take a 4-3 lead. Clarkson rallied on a shorthanded goal with 34 seconds left in regulation to tie the game.

The game remained tied after overtime, and CPH scored the winning goal against Clarkson in a sudden death shoot-out.

The PEOF Advisory Committee, representing a broad cross-section of parents, community leaders and concerned citizens, is working in close collaboration with Potsdam Central School teachers and administrators to develop a strong and ongoing system of support for the most creative and successful initiatives that can be provided to Potsdam students. PEOF raises money to support special projects proposed by teachers, staff and students in the Potsdam schools to enrich the education of Potsdam students.

Its core programs in emergency medicine, acute care, hospitalist medicine, and critical care are supplemented by outpatient health centers in Brasher Falls, Canton, Norfolk, Norwood and Potsdam, N.Y., and by specialist care in over 25 different specialties, including a robust orthopedic surgery and sports medicine program and the Center for Cancer Care. As an affiliate with Gouverneur Hospital in Gouverneur, N.Y., CPH operates within the St. Lawrence Health System, a parent corporation formed to give structure and coherence to the coordination of care in Northern New York.
