Getting Lucky at the Lucky Puck helps young hockey players

Posted: Tuesday, December 30, 2003

Kids who love to play hockey are the real winners at the Lucky Puck Pull Tab salon at the "Y" strip mall in Soldotna. Proceeds from the gaming operation benefit the Kenai Peninsula Hockey Association according to Jana Vinzant, store manager and hockey mom, "I love hockey and I love kids. This really does help, we support all the kids in the Hockey Association and try to lower costs for all those who want to play hockey," said Vinzant. Pull Tabs are a game of chance where you can spend a dollar, and possibly win as much as $500.

The Lucky Puck has been opened since April and word is starting to spread that if you're looking to get lucky, you just can't loose when playing to help kids who want to play hockey. "Even if you give up a few bucks, you've helped one of the most popular activities for kids on the Peninsula. I'm playing with yesterday's winnings right now, and I probably won't leave until it's all gone," commented a patron seated at the pull-tab bar. "The people are really great who come in here, and we have lots of photos of the kids on display so folks get to see where their money ends up," added Vinzant. The Kenai Peninsula Hockey Association is a huge volunteer effort that requires a lot of financial support, time and people to be involved at all levels. For more information call the KPHA hotline at 262-6404 or the Lucky Puck Pull Tab store at 262-4544.
