Eat Wings Raise Funds - Anthony Ford Fund


Last Call!

Come Enjoy some Chipotle while helping us raise funds for Childhood Cancer & helping Mankato area kids play hockey!

The Next Great One

In the spirit of Anthony’s dream of one day becoming the next “Great One” the Anthony Ford Fund was created in 2007 by friends and family of Anthony Ford and has since donated more than $100,000 to Pediatric Cancer Research and United Way's Connecting Kids. AF99 is committed to providing affordable opportunities to grow the hockey culture in our area.

In January 2009, the pond hockey tradition began on Lake Washington about 10 miles outside Mankato, MN. The journey started by building rinks of snow and has since evolved into 12 new rinks with NiceRink boards. In 2016, our event moved to Spring Lake Park in beautiful lower North Mankato which has proven to be a wonderful setting for pond hockey.  The new pond is near the city center of the Mankato/North Mankato area.
