This year we asked Pat Schaump to be the Ambassador for this event and he selected the Ajax Foodbank (Salvation Army-Hope Community Services).
As a League, we also donate annually to the Ajax foodbank, and are very pleased our primary fundraiser will also go to this very needed charity. Since 2014 - the AOHL has raised $19,650 for various charities during the Weekend for Bernie initiative, thanks to the very generous donations from the AOHL players.
Here is Pat’s message:
Pat Schaump here, for those of you that don’t know me I am the team Rep for Remax in the Clute division. Unfortunately I am on the IR this year as I receive treatment for Mantle Cell Lymphoma. I have the honor this year to choose the charity that we as a league will raise funds for on our tournament day which is Saturday November 4th and approaching very fast. I have chosen the Ajax food bank as our society continues to experience very high inflation and the thought of being hungry and no where to turn to is very disturbing. Let’s all be thankful for the blessings we have and give generously this year when the bucket is placed in your dressing room. I am confident we will set yet another record!!
Enjoy the tournament, Play safe, and I look forward to seeing many of you on the ice next year!
