One night each summer, Red Bank plays host to a wall of noise at the Red Bank Armory: 42 hockey players from high schools up and down the shore, their friends, family and die-hard fans all in the name of charity.
Jim Dowd, a “born and raised hockey player” and retired member of the Stanley Cup champion New Jersey Devils, is the founder of the Shoot for the Stars Foundation, which has been running the charity game, a showdown between Monmouth and Ocean counties best high school players, for 15 years.
Approximately 500 action-thirsty supporters came out Sunday evening to watch “All-Star” competitors from 20 different high schools, including Red Bank Regional, Red Bank Catholic and Rumson-Fair Haven.
