Arpin Group Teams Up With Former NHL Players

February 11, 2014

Two of Arpin Group’s vice presidents teamed up with former NHL players in an international charity hockey tournament, hosted by the president of Belarus last month.

Bob Sullivan, senior vice president of corporate accounts, and Mark Dearborn, vice president of corporate accounts, traveled to Belarus to take part in the 10th International Christmas Cup, a hockey tournament comprised of 12 teams, each representing a nation. The Arpin delegates played for the Canadian team, and in one exciting play, Dearborn scored against the Ukrainians.

“This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Sullivan. “It was a treat to play in front of thousands of fans and compete alongside some great former NHL and KHL players. The fact that we were able to do so much good for children’s charities made it that much more special.”

Sullivan and Dearborn also braved the cold and participated in their team’s “polar plunge” in a nearby lake to raise funds for a children’s orphanage in Belarus.
