April 6, 2017 Year End Awards Banquet

This Banquet is for Atom to Midget Divisions.  (Mites & Novice  have their own year end party.)  Mites & Novice are able to attend as guests, with parents.

Cash Raffle Draw took place during the Year End Awards Banquet after the awards have been presented.

AVMHA President Al McCulloch presents cheque for $8000. to Rachel Dame.
Third Prize of $2000. was won by Karen Madill.

Rachel Dame has a son in Mites hockey and like all hockey parents, had a book of tickets to sell as part of AV Minor Hockey’s annual fundraiser.  Like a lot of parents they put their own names on the tickets.

Rachel has been juggling a lot of things this year.  Rachel’s brother, Ryan Arsenault was attacked by a Grizzly Bear and is in hospital in Victoria for at least another month.  Rachel has been travelling to Victoria to give support to her brother in Victoria and back to her family obligations at home in Port Alberni.

At the AVMHA Annual Awards Banquet the tickets to Cash Raffle were drawn.  The 1st ticket out was for Rachel Dame.  The second ticket drawn was for Rachel Dame.  She had just won $8000.

(Congratulations goes out to Karen Madill who won $2000. in the draw.)

We contacted Rachel by phone.  She was certainly surprised.  She new the draw was tonight but had to come up to Glenwood Centre to ensure it was true.

Rachel is overwhelmed and can not say how she will use the money but she now has the funds to register her son in hockey for next season.
