FBHT: Help 4 Haiti
Four teams of players face off in four on four ball hockey at Memorial Gym in North Vancouver for fun and a little fund raising to send Help 4 Haiti at this crucial time.
UPDATE: The plea went out to all teams to get their registrations in early to qualify for the Feb. 12 Canadian Government dollar for dollar matching commitment. Only Surrey Alliance sent in their registration fee on time. The government program was only good for a small number of large organizations.
Instead, Friendship Ball Hockey has chosen to support the Maison de Lumiere orphanage in Port Au Prince directly this will to insure that donated funds go towards helping the orphans.
Here is the link to an orphanage we will be adopting in Port au Prince, Haiti:
And here is a link to a news story there, 'Lone Missionary Stays At Haiti Orphanage':
HERE IS CNN VIDEO OF THE ORPHANAGE BEFORE AND AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE:
Besides having fun with some healthy competition, we aim to give a majority of the proceeds for the kids.
The location is Memorial Gym on Saturday March 6th
Each team plays four games to place in the standings and then the top two teams play a fifth game for the TAYLOR MOTIVE COURAGE CUP!
Full Tournament details to be posted soon and updated as we draw closer to the day.
