Boy’s $50,000 Hockey Shot Slapped Away
The company that insured the charity event, Odds on Promotions, said that 11-year-old Nate Smith isn’t eligible to take home the $50,000 because the raffle ticket that allowed him to take the hockey shot was in his twin brother’s name.
The honesty of the twin boys’ father is what led the event organizers to realize that Nate had posed as his twin brother Nick when he made the shot.
“I called into the organizers. We told them that Nate made the shot. We did the right thing,” Pat Smith told ABCNews.com on Aug. 15. “I just think that honesty is more important than any prize or money you could get.”
