IceHogs 2016-17 Bowl-A-Thon
Rockford, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs announced they have raised $30,536 in funds from their recent annual Autism Awareness Night and Bowl-A-Thon events. Proceeds from the fundraisers will benefit the Autism Program of Easterseals and Families with HD Rooted in Hope, Inc., respectively.
 
The IceHogs hosted their 2016-17 Autism Awareness Night on March 4, auctioning off team “player baskets” that featured a variety of the Hogs players’ favorite items, including hats, clothing, gift cards, food, drinks and signed memorabilia. The annual event also featured the return of “mystery pucks,” with fans purchasing a puck that featured a surprise signature from either a Rockford IceHogs or Chicago Blackhawks skater. 
 
The Autism Program of Easterseals, IceHogs Booster Club and IceHogs players’ wives and girlfriends also generously donated their time to assist in the setup and execution of Autism Awareness night.
 
Through the combined sales of the baskets and mystery pucks, the Hogs raised $21,055 in funds for the Autism Program of Easterseals.
 
The following weekend, the IceHogs hosted their eighth annual Bowl-A-Thon at Cherry Bowl on March 11. Fans took the lanes with Hogs players and coaching staff in an event to raise awareness and funds for the treatment of Huntington’s Disease. The event raised $9,481 for IceHogs charities and Families HD Rooted in Hope, Inc.
 
Additionally, the IceHogs Booster Club made a $2,000 donation to families with Families with HD Rooted in Hope, Inc. during the Bowl-A-Thon event.
