In addition to direct donations here are additional opportunities to support the Ice Dogs:

Special Goals, Assists and Saves

Calling all players, young and old!  We have a really cool fundraiser on Crowdrise this year called Special Goals, Assists and Saves.  Players from any hockey team can sign up and receive donations based on their goals, assists, and/or saves.  To start, set up a site to receive donations by clicking on the “Fundraise for this Campaign” button in the Special Goals, Assists and Saves Crowdrise.  Tell your friends and family, comment on your effort and interact with donors on Crowdriseand through tweeting, sharing on Facebook, and other social media.  Really have fun with it and help a great cause as you tear up your league with your best season ever!
