Picture Day & Fundraising News

Team & Individual Pictures - Monday, October 25th  

Pictures that are used for our Sponsor Placques, and also Individual Pictures (great for little NHL'rs scrapbooks) will be taken at Aspen before practice on Monday Oct 25.  Please wear or bring your Jersey.  We will have extra Jerseys on-hand for anyone who does not yet have a Jersey (older players if you have an extra/outgrown Jersey pls bring for anyone who might need one).

Fundraising Events Coming Up

Can Shake - October 23rd & November 20th 

Two can shakes will be held this fall (with the hope of avoiding the very cold drive that we usually run during the superbowl).  Please sign-up for one of the below can shake dates.  You can sign-up on the form on the attached link, or with your team manager.  Hours & Locations on the below dates will be distributed soon.  There will be a $25 opt out fee if your family prefers a cash donation rather then participation in the shake-the-can cash drive.

Wreath Sale:  November 1 til November 20th

The wreath sale is back this year, this is one of our most popular fundraisers and once sold you will find your friends & neighbors asking every year.... is Hockey doing the wreaths again?  Each player is asked to sell 10 wreaths to friends & family (more if you can do it), we take orders until the week before thanksgiving and wreaths are delivered the week after Thanksgiving so you can decorate your home in time for the holiday season. 

Table at the Farmers Market:  Sunday November 7th

If you have not visited the Farmers Market on Sundays at the commuter parking lot yet this season then you have missed some great produce sold by our local farmers, bakers, and dairys.  The markets allows local non-profit organizations to secure a table for one date each season.  Denville Hockey has reserved a table for Sunday Nov 7th.  We plan on taking orders for wreaths, collecting cash donations (can shake), and selling the Charitymania tickets.  This is in addition to the individual sales that each participating family must do, this is a great chance for our fundraising efforts to reach beyond the hockey familys and bring in revenue from other sources.

 Charitymania:  Coming soon

These are the lottery tickets that were sold last year, they practically sell themselves and are very easy to manage.  The team sells tickets, and registers them on a site, each week you have a chance to win and will be notified by email if you are a winner.  More info to come..
