Keeping Kids on the Ice

The Barry Kulick Memorial Hardship Fund was established in 2006 in memory of my brother. This site works to inform and invite people to participate in our annual fundraiser, Barry's Skate.

Thank You!

I have been overwhelmed with the generosity of the donors to Barry's Hardship Fund; as are the families that we have been able to give financial support. The Fund has made over $32,000 in contributions to over forty-five families in need! There are many young hockey players on the ice thanks to your support! Barry would be very pleased.

The Boys of Winter

“Hockey is a club that holds its members tightly, the bond forged by shared hardship and mutual passion, by every trip to the pond, where your feet hurt and your face is cold and you might get a stick in the ribs or a puck in the mouth, and you still can’t wait to get back out there because you are smitten with the sound of blades scraping against the ice and pucks clacking off sticks, and with the game’s speed and ever-changing geometry. It has a way of becoming the center of your life even when you’re not on the ice.” Wayne Coffey, The Boys of Winter.
