Yup it’s that time of year again hockey fans … Hockey Season.
Just we are going at it minus the National Hockey League once again.
With hockey comes not only the joy that is watching or playing the greatest sport ever; but fundraising for those that are not squabbling over how to divide up billions in revenue.
Former Team USA right wing and a draft pick of the New York Rangers Kevin Miller is running two separate raffles to raise money for different hockey organizations.
Before I tell you about the two raffles here is something that pertains to both of them:
TICKETS ARE ONLY $1 EACH
Yup you read that correctly, I didn’t mistype. One Dollar.
To benefit the Greater Lansing Amateur Hockey Association (GLAHA) the drawing will take place on December 15th (2012) and you DO NOT need to be present to win (so those of you not in Michigan can still enter).
Here are the prizes up for grabs:
1st Prize: Signed Ryan Miller (Sabres) Jersey
2nd Prize: Signed Drew Miller (Red Wings) Jersey
3rd Prize: Michigan State University Jersey (In case you did not know 10 members of the Miller family have played hockey for MSU).
4th Prize: Steaks from Mert’s Specialty Meats
All processes for this raffle will go to help support youth hockey in the great Lansing area.
To benefit Spartan 16U Girls Hockey also taking place on December 15th of this year.
First Prize: 2 tickets to the 2013 Winter Classic: Detroit Red Wings hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium. Literally the biggest hockey game ever; never mind the fact that if could be the first National Hockey League game of the season.
