    Birmingham Unified Charity Games

    Come join us for the annual Birmingham Unified hockey team charity games on Saturday, January 14 at the Birmingham Ice Rink! 

    5:40  BU JV vs. Rochester

    7:40  BU Varsity vs. Clarkston

    Every year the BU hockey teams support one charity for this event.  For the past three years our charity has been The Matthew Bittker Foundation (see more information below).  This charity was chosen because we have a special connection, in that Matthew’s brother, Jason Bittker, played for BU Hockey from 2011 until 2014.  Last year we were able to donate over $4,000 to the foundation!  

    There are many activities planned for the event that include a silent auction, Chuck-a-Puck, pizza give-aways and raffles.  The silent auction will be LIVE online, from January 9, 2017 until the end of the first period of the Varsity game on January 14.  Items include Red Wings tickets, U of M tickets, Restaurant Gift Cards, Fitness certificates, and more!  Click on the link below to place your bid!

    Any questions?  Please email Amy Bumbaugh at

    Come out and support our BU Kings for a good cause!


    THE MATTHEW BITTKER FOUNDATION.  Matthew Bittker was an incredibly happy, healthy, vibrant, and active little boy. He suddenly experienced severe leg pain after an amazingly fun, action packed day. Matthew’s life changed completely on Super Bowl weekend 2006, when he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Matthew received intense chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant, surgery, radiation, antibody therapy, and additional chemotherapy. He seemed to respond very well to the treatment. Shortly after his treatment regiment was completed, we received the devastating news that this insidious cancer had started to grow again. After 18 months, Matthew Bittker lost his battle with cancer on July 20, 2007.  Matthew leaves behind a wonderful legacy. His strength, courage, determination, and humor remain an inspiration to us all. He always found a way to smile and enjoy life despite the obstacles he faced. After Matthew passed away, we established the Matthew Bittker Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity organization, as a living tribute to the warm-hearted boy who touched so many in his short life. The Foundation is dedicated to funding research for Neuroblastoma and other types of pediatric cancer. You can learn more about The Matthew Bittker Foundation at
