Huntsville Havoc visits Neonatal ICU

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Players from the Huntsville Havoc took a visit to Huntsville Hospital for Women and Children Monday afternoon. 

Players and coaches toured the Neonatal ICU in preparation for Melissa George night this Saturday, Feb.  2.

This year kicks off the Havoc's thirteenth year hosting the special night. The night is a dedication to the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund at the hospital. Players will wear pink and blue jerseys that will be auctioned off to fans after the game. 

These auctions have raised almost $600,000 for NICU equipment over the last twelve years. 

The first 1,000 fans who bring an item for the NICU parent waiting room will receive a commemorative coffee tumbler. Requested items include: Keurig K-Cups, journals, board books, adult coloring books, individually wrapped snacks, restaurant gift cards, gas gift cards, monetary donations for parking tokens, or preemie/newborn clothing. 

The game will be at the Von Braun Center this Saturday at 7 p.m. 

 

Huntsville Havoc Team Visits Neonatal ICU at Huntsville Hospital

Havoc raising money for Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund with annual benefit game, Saturday, February 2.

The Huntsville Havoc is hosting its 13th annual Melissa George Night on Saturday, February 2, at the Von Braun Center. In preparation for this event, the entire Havoc team went on a tour of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Huntsville Hospital; and come to find out, a few of the players have a personal connection to this type of care. 

The Havoc's goalie, Max Milosek, was born premature and had to spend some time in the NICU when he was first born. 

Another teammate, center Colton Wolter, and his identical twin brother were born two months premature, one weighing around four pounds and the other weighing around two pounds. 

For these two rookies, a first time trip to the NICU at Huntsville Hospital for Women and Children meant seeing firsthand what their first living moments were like. 

"It puts it into perspective," Milosek said. "It's pretty crazy to see and I'm just thankful that I'm here."

Brutally officiated game tonight. I expect some bloodshed in the Melissa George game tomorrow night between the Storm and the Havoc, especially if it's the same ref as tonight. Doc

Got plenty of supplies before the game, in anticipation of a busy night for me- fortunately and surprisingly  no stitches needed tonight. Doc

And as usual, the Havoc fans come through with a huge donation to a well-deserved cause. Sticks, jerseys, even the coaches' ties and Detulleo's sport coat! Over $3 million has been raised over the 13 years this event has occurred. :clap: Doc
