Billy Bryant, Chris Deutsch, and David Soady, Washington DC. Winning Benefactors: They founded the organization, President’s Hockey. Because of them, there is a new found excitement in the hearts of many families in DC’s Ward 8, a community where crime and lack of resources receive regular local media attention, thus becoming a disappointing norm. In a time when most people are holding tight to their wallets and their time, these three long-time friends have found a way to take their passion for hockey and give back to a community where their helping hands will reach the deepest. Discovering a common interest, they’ve broken down financial barriers, allowing kids to enjoy themselves while gaining vital skills that surpass the sport they play. These ordinary men have come full circle from the moment they laced their first pair of ice skates in this same area. More importantly, they are creating new circles of hope for these children.
