Men’s Hockey: Raffle Raises $2700 for Make-A-Wish Foundation

A raffle held at the University of Vermont men’s hockey 2003-04 opening game against Boston College on Oct. 4 raised $2,700 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Vermont.

The raffle, held by UVM in conjunction with an appearance by former Boston Bruins star defenseman Ray Bourque, a spokesman for Banknorth, offered autographed sticks and an opportunity to have a professional photo taken with the future Hockey Hall of Famer. Ticket sales raised $892, with Banknorth Vermont adding an additional $1,808 for a total of $2,700, the amount donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Vermont.

The University of Vermont Department of Athletics is proud of its association with Banknorth Vermont, a long-time corporate partner, and its involvement in the raffle, which made possible the donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Vermont.
