Members of the Minnesota State men’s hockey team will be "Skaters as Waiters" from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Junker's Bar & Grill in North Mankato.
Hockey players will wait tables and tend bar, donating all tips to Campus Kitchen Mankato, a non-profit organization that helps prepare and deliver meals around Mankato for families. There will also be a silent auction for items that include Maverick hockey memorabila.
The event is being coordinated by Brian Kilburg, Matt Tyree, Mick Berge, Jon Kalinski, Channing Boe and Rylan Galiardi.
"This is a chance for those that follow the Maverick men's hockey program to get to know us while having a great time and a great meal," Kilburg said. "But our primary focus is to assist and provide support for Campus Kitchen Mankato. We want to be involved in the community, and this project is something we all thought would be appropriate and worthwhile."
