Thank You also to Brian Emanuel of M&M Meat Shops for giving his time
providing the equipment for serving up those awesome burgers and
dogs (be sure to keep M&M's in mind the next time
you're thinking of
firing up the BBQ!)
Notable thanks to the many who rented tables for the Event -- we hope
were pleased with the sales made from the Hawks Annual Gear Sale!
We would be remiss to not extend thanks to our dedicated
friends at the
Hawks home arena, Jack and Stuart Poteri, who graciously agreed to allow
the event to happen simultaneously
with the first day of Tryouts!
Finally, thank YOU for responding so positively to the Event and for
coming out in
supporting the fundraiser in whatever way you did!!
This first annual event raised $731.37 (... and financial donations
still MOST welcome - contact Christine at 455-1877 should you wish help
this event grow!!) As you all know,
this money will go towards helping
kids play this year with the Hawks whom, without some financial support,
otherwise be able to play hockey this year.
Thanks again and we will see you again next year at the 2nd Annual ....
- Carter Harrington, age 8, bought his very first Official's Jersey
at the sale from the Chisholm family, but unfortunately
If you have it, please get in touch with Chris at 443-5883. Thanks
