(Feb. 10, 2014) -The March 15 GMU Hockey Club Alumni Game will benefit the Kraus family, whose eight children ages 9 to 25 are without a mother or father after Cheryl Kraus passed away unexpectedly in November. Three years early, Jeff Krause passed away from cancer.
Donations of $15 (payable to the Kraus Children Fund) are being asked the game scheduled for 3:50 p.m. at the Prince William Ice Arena.
Several of the Kraus children attended and/or graduated from Broad Run High School including Bryan, age 20, who plays club hockey at GMU. Matt, age 25, will be on the opposing alumni team in the March 15 game.
Jeff Kraus was very involved in Dulles Little League in Ashburn and now has a field named after him along with the Kraus Korner concession stand.
