SD Gulls Joe Piskula on Hockey 4 Hope: Brain Cancer Awareness

Joe Piskula is more than a professional hockey player.  He’s a creative fund raiser.  

"I want to do something more than just play hockey," says Piskula, "I thought this was a great opportunity to give back." That is Joe Piskula on the Brain Cancer Awareness game, happening April 2nd at the Valley View Casino Center.  Working in conjunction with the San Diego Gulls,  Piskula is raising money to help his high school coach Dom Hilger and family to fly from Wisconsin to attend the game.

Hilger is a brain cancer survivor.  "He means a great deal to me. Next to your father, your coach is next most important male adult in your life.  He has taught me so much and I want to show my appreciation for everything he has done for me."
