Kevin Miller’s annual charity hockey game between Michigan State University and Red Wings alumni took place in March in East Lansing. Over the last 4 years, the event has raised over $200,000 for local organizations, such as the Cristo Rey Community Center and the Volunteers of America.


2017 marks the event’s fourth year thanks to the vision and guidance of Lansing native Kevin Miller. Miller was on the MSU hockey team from 1984-88, participated in the 1988 Olympic games and played forward with the Red Wings. He is currently a Certified Financial Planner for his own firm Kevin Miller Financial Services and coaches youth hockey.

“Giving back to the Lansing community through this event has been a way for me to contribute to the city that has given me so much,” said Miller. “Getting alumni back together and raising awareness for local charities is something I look forward to every year.”

The money raised from the exhibition game is donated to local charities. “As Lansing’s Community Bank, we are always happy to devote our efforts to raising funds that benefit our community,” said Ed Harden, president of Capitol National Bank. Opened in 1968, the Cristo Rey Community Center is a basic-needs service provider with emphasis on access to food, medical care and mental health services. Founded in 1896, the Volunteers of America is a nonprofit that provides affordable housing and services to low-income people in the U.S.
