Gar Wood Securities, LLC Supports the STAC Scholarship Fund Hockey Tournament

CHICAGO – Gar Wood Securities is proud to be one of the lead sponsors in the 2nd Annual Security Traders Association of Chicago (STAC) Fund Face Off Hockey Tournament.

The tournament will be a one night event, which is held in Chicago at Johnny’s Ice House on July 16, 2015 from 4pm to 9:30pm. Most of the players in the tournament are amateur players from Chicagoland and are affiliated within the financial services industry.  This year’s event will include a few players from the East coast, and we hope to attract teams from various cities next year. The players will be paired off into four teams and will play two games.

The cost for spectators to watch is $25.00 per person, which includes cocktails and appetizers following the game.

“We are thrilled to participate in this year’s tournament to help raise money for the STAC Scholarship Fund.  It should be a fun event for both the players and spectators, and we hope that all of the excitement from the Chicago Blackhawks and the Stanley Cup will generate a great deal of interest in the tournament.”, said Robert Jersey, President and CEO of Gar Wood Securities, LLC.

The STAC Scholarship Fund awards college scholarships to students and various charitable and educational institutions.

The STAC Fund is a charitable organization that also makes donations to the American Red Cross, Windy City Habitat for Humanity, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, among others.

“Gar Wood Securities is known for its commitment to our clients and active involvement in associations.  We couldn’t be happier to collaborate with this fantastic initiative.” concluded Mr. Jersey.
