What an incredible evening we had on Friday at our annual fundraising party! And what a great way to kick off our 50th season! It was heartwarming to see so many familiar faces, as well as new ones, come together to support the Capitals.
The generous donations and event netted over $40K for the Capitals! Please know that we are deeply grateful.
Let's take a moment to acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of our fundraising committee. An unbelievable amount of logistics, time, talent, and treasure is needed to make this event successful and available to us all.
Give these folks a high five when you see them next. They are your fundraising committee:
- Jim and Alissa Runyon
- Kelly Rand
- Melissa and Brendan Pearson
- Sarah Skillrud
- Nancy Hayes
- Stef Goodlund
- Brian and Megan Murphy
- Kyle and Emily Medcraft
- Anne and Joel Wolf
- Tara Schletz
- Mike Casper
This team met every week for the past 6 weeks. In between meetings they called, visited, emailed, texted, and followed up on over 300 business and individuals in St. Paul. As a result, they secured over 200 donations that combined to make over 100 items in our live and silent auctions, and raffles.
Thanks again for making our 50th Anniversary season kick-off fundraiser a shining example of what can be achieved when we all come together to support our youth hockey community.
