A special thank you to all the fans, parents and players from Oak Creek and Menomonee Falls as the annual "Knight for a Cause" game was once again a huge success. The game brought in over $2,000 for Autism Speaks foundation for the third consecutive season. A big thank you to all of the parents and family members that contributed baked goods, donation items, and their time to make this night a great success! Thanks to KollegeTown Sports for donating the t-shirts for the event and our "friend" of the program for his donation of the grand prize, a 43" 4K television. Thanks to everyone for all their efforts!
