Update: December 10, 2015:
Last year at this time, upon news of the loss of funding for the Club Ice Hockey team of NY Maritime Privateers, we reached out to sports-loving alumni & friends, as well as former hockey players, and family & friends of the current team. You showed your love with $12,000 within a few days, and kept us on the ice! From the bottom of our skates, we thank you.
We are still on the ice for this 2015 – 2016 season, and are getting stronger, and are continuing to raise funds of our own. We ask for additional continued support from you on two fronts, with a fundraising goal of $15,300:
* Ice time for practice.
Practice makes such a difference in our performance. We figure if we can get a mere 12 hours of practice across this season, our results will turn around. Those 12 hours at $550 cost $6,600.
* Uniform appeal.
We play with all our heart. For us to add the professional touch, however, we need proper uniforms. For each of the 29 players to wear a new uniform at $300 each, the cost is $8,700.
For the first 50 who can provide support in the amount of $300 – the cost of one uniform – (or greater), we will be sending you a special Hockey Challenge Coin. In order to receive yours, please email your name and address to: Bridget@FSMAA.org
For every donor, no matter the amount, we appreciate your contribution, and we will be taking a page in the Winter issue of the FSMAA Mariner to recognize all donors from the Dec 2014 GoFundMe appeal & this Dec 2015 GoFundMe appeal.
