Tomahawks Partner with Forest Hills Girls Varsity

Volleyball Team to “Spike Autism”


Johnstown, Pa – The Johnstown Tomahawks will put away their hockey skates for one night and take their athletic abilities to an entirely different playing surface when they faceoff against the Forest Hills Girls Varsity Volleyball Team on Monday, March 18 from 7-9 p.m. The Tomahawks are proud to participate in “Spike Autism,” a charity volleyball game organized by three Forest Hills seniors.


Those interested in attending can call the Tomahawks office at (814) 536-4625 to purchase tickets, which are $2 per person. The event will benefit ACRP’s Autism Spectrum Disorders Unit and take place inside the Forest Hills High School Gym.


Keri Ondrejik, Brianna Neff, and Lakin Stiffler organized the charity game as their senior project in order to raise awareness and money for autism spectrum disorders.


“The Tomahawks are thrilled to team with Keri, Brianna, Lakin, and the entire Forest Hills Girls Varsity Volleyball Team,” said Tomahawks Community Relations Manager Whitney Pappas. “Our organization has a strong commitment to supporting local and youth athletics and contributing to wonderful causes like this one. Our players are extremely excited to hit the court on Monday night.”


The Tomahawks will also assist the charity game with a 50/50 raffle and Chuck-a-Puck, along with t-shirt giveaways, prizes and more. Chopper, the Tomahawks mascot, will also be in attendance.


The Tomahawks are off this weekend but return to action in Kalamazoo, Mich. on Saturday, March 23 for the first of the team’s final four games of the regular season, all of which will be played on the road.
