Want to HELP....Here's your Chance
As many of you may know Earl is back on the ice playing hockey again. He is hoping to return to the ice one more time this year....so here's hoping he recovers to that point. Earl is a member of the Manitoba Sledge Hockey Team, which is new in Manitoba, this being it's second season. Last year the team had 8 players and this year has grown to in excess of 25 players. We are also happy to announce that we are now a part of Hockey Manitoba, which comes with many benefits and helps us get more ice time. Sledge hockey is a para Olympic sport and in fact Canada has the best team in the world. Anyway....just wanted to give you some background. The opportunity for Earl to play hockey again has made him so happy, and once again he has the ability to get out there and shine.
How can you help?
1) Join us on Saturday April 4th at the Manitoba Moose game. If we sell 100 tickets we will be included in the opportunity to sell 50.50 tickets at MTS events. This is a great way for the team to raise funds. The cost for you to purchase the Moose game ticket is only $15. and we will all sit in the same section.
2) We are hoping to get Earl his own equipment
3) Each team member is given a pledge form....if you think you would like to help out with a donation please let us know.
4) The team is also looking for corporate sponsorship, with which they can purchase sleds, ice time, jerseys and other equipment, and host awareness activities throughout Manitoba.
You know my number so call if you are interested in attending or helping out in any way.
The game should be alot of fun and we can sell more than 100 tickets....so come on out and have some fun while supporting Earl, his team and a very worthy cause.
Have a great day,
