PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Providence College men’s ice hockey team will host two charity drives during their next game against the Vermont Catamounts at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20 in Schneider Arena.
There will be a general toy drive that supports the Toys for Tots Foundation, sponsored by Webster Bank. Toy donations must be new and unwrapped and will be collected in the Schneider Arena lobby during the first two intermissions of the game. Anyone that donates a toy will receive a voucher for a free ticket to the Friar’s first home game of the new year against the Massachusetts Minutemen, at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12. Vouchers can be redeemed in the Alumni Hall ticket office or via mail.
There will also be a drive to support the Defending the Blue Line Foundation. Defending the Blue Line ensures that children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in the game of hockey through equipment and monetary donations. New or sparingly used equipment can be donated at the game (12/20) with the same vouchers being awarded for donations. Donations to Defending the Blue Line will also receive a raffle ticket for an autographed puck and photo of Boston Bruins goaltender, Tuukka Rask. Raffle tickets can also be purchased for $5.
The Friars will host their second annual outdoor youth clinic at the Kennedy Plaza Rink in downtown Providence. The clinic will be held on Sunday, Feb. 3 from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. for children between the ages of six and 12. The entry fee is $20 and includes admission into the clinic, breakfast provided by Dunkin Donuts, a souvenir goodie bag, and a ticket for the Friars game on Friday, February 8 versus the New Hampshire Wildcats at 7:00 p.m. To register, contact Tony Troiano at 401-865-1969 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
