Since 1987, the Minnesota NHL Alumni Association (formerly the Minnesota North Stars Alumni) and our individual members have committed significant time, energy and resources to various activities and events that result in benefit to youth and/or worthwhile causes generally related to the sport of hockey. Our group has been heavily involved with the Minnesota WILD – partnering in many activities with the WILD.
As an organization we have contributed over four hundred twenty five thousand dollars in scholarships and contributions to such organizations as CTE Research, American Cancer, Camp Confidence, Masterton Foundation, Marriucci Inner City Youth Hockey, as well as various youth hockey organizations across the state as well as multiple Military Veteran organizations.
In 2012 the MN NHL Alumni Association initiated a new philanthropic program to donate AED defibulators to Minnesota youth hockey rinks that were not equipped with these life saving devices. We have purchased more than 30 AEDs for Minnesota arenas and continue to add to this count. Quality AED defibulators cost approximately $2000 each. Donations to this program are invited.
Another major donation program, in conjunction with Reebok/CCM, is underwriting youth hockey expenses for financially challenged young players. Over the years we have assisted dozens of young players across the state with equipment and ice fees.
A major part of our fund raising comes from our annual charity golf event. The golf tournament benefits many charitable causes the Association and its member support. The appeal of our events, and therefore the success of our charitable endeavors, depends on participants, sponsorships, donations and contributions.
