Garrett Getlin Snider, grandson of Flyers owner Ed Snider, hosted a charity shopping night with Saks Fifth Avenue Wednesday night to help benefit the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation, an organization that targets inner-city boys and girls who would otherwise lack the opportunity to learn to skate or to play ice hockey.

Guests enjoyed holiday cocktails, shopping and hors d'ouerves as they mingled with guests like Bernie Parent, Bob Kelly, Lauren Hart, the Laviolettes, and the Holmgrens. 10 percent of all proceeds from the event went to the Foundation.
