Fundraising Activities
 
Listed below is a brief history of some of our groups early fund raising activities and the resulting activities and the resulting profits:
1985 Cash Draw $20,000
1984-86 Bingos $16,000
1986 Porsche 944 Raffle $53,000
1987 50/50 Draws $5,000
1987 Pee Wee Tournament $5,000
1987  Casino $23,000
1989 NHL Playoff Draft $8,000

Since 1989, we have continued to gain funds from casinos. Our most recent two-day event raised $60,000 for the Hockey Program. Our NHL Draft, annually brings in around $10,000 and the Pee Wee Tournament raises between $4000 and $5000 each Christmas. 50/50 Draws usually bring in $5000 per season. In 2001, thanks to Dennis Cranston and his hardworking organizing committee, the Golden Bears Hockey Golf Classic was started. This celebrity tournament has been a huge success and hopefully, it will continue to be a great event and a tremendous fund raiser.

GAMING COMMISSION FUNDS

All funds raised through casino and raffles are controlled by the Government of Alberta's Gaming Commission. Money raised from these activities can only be used for very specific items, all of which are governed and approved by the commission.

Examples of our Gaming approved expenditures are scholarships, meal money for road trips and equipment and supplies beyond the regular athletic budget (skates, for example).

Examples of things that Gaming funds cannot be used for are alumni postage, letterhead, envelopes, ice rental for Alumni functions, and food or refreshments for Alumni functions.

ALUMNI GENERAL FUNDS

The Golden Bears Hockey Alumni's General Fund must be used to pay for all administrative expenses incurred in running the affairs of our group. We generate general funds through our social functions, donations from Alumni members, the Christmas Pee Wee Tournament and the Golden Bears Golf Classic.

YOUR SUPPORT AS A GOLDEN BEAR HOCKEY ALUMNUS IS ESSENTIAL!
