My name is Kelly Thorne and I am the Fundraising Director on the CSB Board. I am excited for another hockey season to be starting and am looking for your help in creating a new fundraising event this year!
As many of you know, CSB Hockey has sponsored a Shoot-to-Score Skill Contest for all age levels in the past. This event occurs in conjunction with our main raffle fundraiser. This year we will again be doing a raffle but the main event will be a Super Skills Challenge (NHL All-Star Skills Competition style). Players will be given a raffle packet early in the season which will include details about the raffle and event.
In the meantime, I am seeking volunteers to help with this project both in terms of garnering donated items for the raffle, and assistance during the event. If you, or someone you know, might be willing to donate raffle prizes (we will have prizes for raffle winners, top ticket sellers, and skills challenge winners) please let me know. Any and all ideas are welcome, so please don’t hesitate to be in touch if you have an idea. Items might include gift certificates to local businesses, hotel stays, spa packages, electronic equipment, etc. Given that the event is during holiday season, there are many prizes that would be appreciated!
If you are interested in being on the Skills Challenge Committee, please let me know. I could use assistance in planning & organizing the event and would enjoy collaborating with other hockey parents who want to get involved. In addition to on-ice fun for the players we’d like to create a carnival/expo type atmosphere for all to enjoy!
Thanks so much for considering these opportunities – please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have raffle prize ideas and/or if you’d like to volunteer to be on the Skills Challenge Committee.
See you at the rink!
