Annual Dominik Pettey '15 Memorial Purple White Game
Ft. Dupont Ice Arena, 3779 Ely Place SE, Washington, DC 20019
Gonzaga Ice Hockey kicks off its season every year with the Dominik Pettey Purple White Game, an inter-squad game played in honor of friend and teammate Dominik Pettey ’15, who died in a car accident in 2014.
The event raises money for the Dominik L. Pettey ’15 Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund at Gonzaga. Dominik, whose #11 was retired by Gonzaga hockey after his tragic death, embodied the spirit of Gonzaga, and the fund is one way we keep his legacy strong on Eye Street. All gifts help make a Gonzaga education possible for deserving students.
Here's the schedule for this year's event:
7:30 AM: Mass for Dominik Pettey in Our Lady's Chapel. Fr. Planning will preside.
4:15 PM: Bus departs Gonzaga for Fort Dupont
5:00 PM: Opening ceremonies begin
5:30 PM: Puck drop by the Petteys
Please note: There will be a shuttle bus to and from the rink for students. The bus will leave Gonzaga around 4:15 PM and return to school around 7:15 PM.
Admission is free but donations will be accepted at the door.
