Honoring afflicted neighbors: “Dot Pot” tradition continues

The 2nd annual "Dot Pot" puck drop

Pete Cahill ’15 and neighborhood friends Ryan Sweeney and Timmy Galvin returned from college this summer to continue their flagship hockey tournament, “The Dot Pot,” in Dorchester’s Garvey Park. Last year’s tournament raised donations for cancer victim Carl Hosea, who died shortly after the gathering. In its second iteration, this summer’s event honored the family of Michael Baker, a police officer who died this past spring. With momentum fueling this admirable community cause, the trio of organizers hoped to raise upwards of $13,000 for the hockey competition, which occurred last weekend. Read more on “The Dot Pot,” which the Boston Globe has featured for the second consecutive summer.
