The 4th annual Keep Smilin 4 Abbie foundation Field Hockey event took place Saturday August 5th. Due to questionable weather, the event took place at the "Teamworks" facility on 185 Otis Street in Northborough this year.

This years event featured the classic Hillers Alumni vs Current Field hockey team as well as the community teams and also a few other schools such as Holliston, Tantasqua and Medway joined in on the fun as well.

The games took place to benefit the Keep Smilin 4 Abbie Foundation. The foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization began operations in January 2014 after Hopkinton student and Field Hockey player, Abbie Benford passed away due to an anaphylactic reaction. The Foundation hosts numerous events for funds to raise awareness of anaphylaxis and to fund research.
