Gaming License is pending but we hope to get tickets out ASAP. Each AVMHA player that paid the $100. Fundraising Fee will get a book of 20 tickets to sell.
Any fundraising done by our Association is to follow guidelines in the AVMHA Handbook or approved by the AVMHA Executive.
Fundraising by any team must be approved by our Fundraising Coordinator and follow the guidelines in the AVMHA Handbook. (This includes such activities as bottle drives, merchandise sales, food sales, etc.)
Like all other organizations we (the executive) are trying or best to keep overall costs down along with the registration costs for our members. Our organization, has been experiencing many increasing costs that we can no longer cover with our current level of registration and fundraising.
One of our biggest costs is the ice which increases annually plus the HST. Other large expenditures include equipment (jerseys, pucks, etc.) and referees for games.
AVMHA has various fundraising events for the benefit of the association as a whole but it does not include the other fundraising events which are done to support individual teams or divisions so they can go to tournaments.
It was decided by the executive that the least impact on the players would be to take on one major fundraising project annually. As this fundraising project is for the benefit of every player in the association, every player will participate.
This fundraising project has been attached to the player registration in the form of a “$100. Fundraising Fee” which is non-refundable and payable at registration. The Fundraising project is designed to reimburse the player the $100. by participating.
If anyone has any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please feel free to contact us.
