Sundogs to Donate $6,000 to Local Charities During December 23 Game

December 19, 2006 - Central Hockey League (CHL) - Arizona Sundogs News Release

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. - During the first intermission of the Saturday, December 23 game against Southwest Division rival, the New Mexico Scorpions, the Arizona Sundogs will make a donation of $6,000 to local charities raised during a November 22 Thanksgiving jersey auction.

During the December 23 game, the Sundogs will wear special Christmas-themed jerseys. At the conclusion of the game, the team will hold a live jersey auction, their second jersey auction to raise money for charity.

The $6,000 raised will be divided among six local non-profit agencies that have partnered with the Arizona Sundogs in their Team Up For Hope campaign in which money raised will be distributed throughout surrounding communities to make Northern Arizona a better place to live. The six charities receiving $1,000 each are Stepping Stones Agencies, Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Arizona, Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters, the United Way, Yavapai Food Bank and Prescott Area Habitat for Humanity.

"The jerseys are fun," said Head Coach/GM Marco Pietroniro. "We're happy to be able to raise money for local charities that will put the money to use and make our community a better place to live. We will wear theme jerseys several more times throughout the year to continue to be able to give back to the charities and organizations that do so much for families in Northern Arizona."
