Police-Fire Fighter Hockey Tournament To Help 6-Month Baby Boy

A horrible tragedy has struck a family in Washington County and now emergency responders are coming together to help!

The Hagerstown Ice & Sports Complex will host a charity hockey game between local police officers and firefighters on May 22, 2017.  The game will be held at 7 pm and all proceeds will benefit Bentley Dorman’s family.

Last December Katlyn Hughes, 24, struck by a hit-and-run driver in Hagerstown.  Sadly, Katlyn passed away from the injuries she sustained.  She left behind three children, 3 week-old Bentley, 4 year-old Blake, and 8 year-old Cadence.

Bentley was born premature, and he suffers from bilateral club feet and a Stage 1 brain hemorrhage, which impacts his motor skills and cognitive abilities.

Katlyn’s mother, Bentley’s grandma, has filed for custody and has cared for Bentley since the tragedy.

The medical bills are piling up for this family and if you would like to help – visit the ‘Bentley Dorman Charity Hockey Game’ GoFundMe page.
