Thank You! A Successful Season Kick-Off
Thank you to everyone who supported our 2018-19 season kick-off event and fundraiser for Humboldt Broncos Player, Ryan Straschnitzki.

We raised $1,764.00 from the bake sale, popcorn sale and silent auction.  These funds have already been donated directly to Ryan Straschnitzki and his family to aid in his continuing care and associated costs.  

We want to continue to raise awareness of the Be A Donor campaign through our link below in memory of 21 year old Logan Boulet of Lethbridge, Alberta.  The Broncos player had recently signed an organ donation card and because of that, it was expected he would be saving the lives of at least six people.

People can click the link above to register as a donor or to check their status as a donor - it's very easy!  Take a look and check out your status, if you are not currently a donor, become one! 

Thank you to the 2017-18 Minor Midget players and the Barrie Colts AAA Coaches & Alumni for participating in the game!  It was great to see the Minor Midget team on the ice together one last time.   

Special thanks to our timekeeper, Mike Ashwood, and the referees for donating their time.

Thank you to everyone who donated items to the bake sale and silent auction.  Thank you Laura Lightheart and Liane Brassard for your assistance with the bake sale and silent auction.

Thank you to John Brassard, Andrew Prince and Arif Khan for participating in the ceremonial puck drop. 

And finally, the success of this event wouldn’t have been possible without the work of Michelle Ricci-Bishop.  Thank you for organizing such an awesome and thoughtful event!  

Here are a few photos of the event:
