Money raised through online giving during the May 1, 2018, Give Day Tampa Bay charity fundraising event will benefit youth throughout Tampa Bay by helping finance clinics and leagues to teach girls and boys ages 4 and up to play ball hockey, according to Grow Hockey Movement, Inc., President Joe Limone.
Grow Hockey Movement, Inc., an IRS tax exempt 501(c)3 charity based in Tampa is one of the more than 400 area nonprofit organizations participating in the May 1, 2018, Give Day Tampa Bay project.
A $10,000 fundraising goal has been set by Grow Hockey Movement (GHM) for the 2018 Give Day Tampa Bay 24-hour online charitable giving challenge, to raise money for Grow Hockey Movement’s scholastic and community ball hockey programs for girls and boys ages 4 and up, regardless of ability to pay.
“By giving $5 or more by going online to http://firstname.lastname@example.org on Tuesday, May 1, Grow Hockey Movement friends and supporters can help GHM reach the goal, enabling the organization to introduce thousands of additional youths to ball hockey through school PE programs and scholastic and community leagues,” Limone said.
Grow Hockey Movement free learn-to-play clinics, in partnership with the Lightning Made Hockey Foundation, have reached more than 50,000 elementary and middle school students already.
Raising awareness of the GHM mission through Give Day Tampa Bay this year and in the future will boost fundraising efforts as more and more people in the hockey community contribute because they know their money is going straight to the core mission–sharing our love for the sport of hockey by teaching the next generation of players.
