The Knights of Meaford Hockey fundraiser during the team’s January 17th game was a huge success, according to Director of Marketing Jason Acres, despite the team’s 4-2 loss to the Bradford Bulls.
Twenty-five team jerseys worn by Meaford Knights were auctioned off at prices ranging from $50-250, proceeds going to the A Child’s Voice Foundation and its Angel Hair for Kids program that provides wigs and hair loss solutions to financially disadvantaged children who have lost their hair due to a medical condition or treatment.
Funds from the jersey auction were combined with proceeds of raffle ticket sales and beer garden for a total raised of $3,381.
The Hockey Hits Cancer charity game was organized by Mackenzie Fleming on behalf of A Child’s Voice Foundation and with sponsors Nisim International and Here We Grow Fertilizer Company. “We are pleased with the amount raised from the charity game. “We hope to increase that amount drastically at our annual Hockey Hits Cancer tournament March 8-10,” he said.
