Fundraiser for U18 Storm Player
A U18 Valley Storm player and their father were injured on 20 January 2023 heading to a tournament. Please see inside for details on a fundraiser for the family as they are both expected to remain in a Toronto hospital for a few weeks to recover.

Dear Association Presidents in District 5,


I am writing on behalf of both Eganville and District Minor Hockey and Barry's Bay and Area Minor Hockey Associations.  


As you may know, a player and his father from our Storm U18 team were involved in a serious vehicle collision on their way to a tournament on January 20th 2023.  Both father and son are in hospitals in Toronto, and will remain there for several weeks.  


In a small community like ours, this has touched many people who would like to be able to show their support.


As a gesture of goodwill and solidarity, we would like to invite all teams in District 5 to participate in a fundraiser to help the family with the costs that will be incurred in upcoming weeks.


We would like to invite teams to donate the proceeds of one of their 50-50 draws (or any other amount) from now until February 4th. 


EDMHA treasurer Angie Seguin has agreed to collect the money (either cash given to her or e-transfer) and she will then send the money to the family.  Our plan is to divide the amount in half.  Half will go to Mom (and Gavin) and half will go to dad.  As you can imagine, this tragic event comes with a lot of additional expenses for the family (travel, meals, accomodation, etc.).  


Participation is approved by District 5 and strictly voluntary.  No obligation.  


Anyone wishing to participate can give the donation to Angie Seguin, EDMHA treasurer, or e-transfer her.

Deadline is Feb 4th 2023.


If you agree to forward this invitation to the teams in your associations, it would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance to all teams who decide to contribute.
