THE IMPORTANCE OF
POND HOCKEY SPONSORSHIP
THE ONLY POND HOCKEY CHARITY TOURNAMENT WHERE A
FORMER NHL PLAYER IS PLACED ON EVERY TEAM!
The success of the Northern Roots Pond Hockey Charity Tournament is made possible, in large part, by the generous corporate sponsorships and gifts received by iRise Above Foundation from donors like you.
Besides being a tournament played in Central Park, one of the most unique features that sets the Northern Roots Charity Pond Hockey Tournament apart from all others, is that we guarantee former NHL players on every registered team. Players get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to play alongside former NHL players, and mingle socially, all while raising awareness and supporting a very important cause.
WHAT DOES THE MONEY RECEIVED FROM A SPONSORSHIP PAY FOR?
The funds received support (but not limited to):
Hosting former NHL guests (accommodations, travel, and meal expenses)
Accommodations for essential staff
Ice rental in Central Park
Marketing and advertising
Registration bags for players
Providing lunch meals for all registered players and volunteer staff
Photographer/videographer to capture the spirit of the event
We aim to keep the COSTS LOW...
the EXPERIENCE HIGH...
and the PROCEEDS TO A MAXIMUM!
Proceeds raised from the Pond Hockey Charity Event go directly towards the iRise Above Foundation's mission goal of surrounding young women with targeted, age-appropriate, and connected health and wellness resources to enable them to rise above the residual effects of breast cancer, complete a life-changing mind-body-spirit expedition, and enjoy long-term survival.
With each Northern Roots Pond Hockey Tournament, the iRise Above Foundation establishes a quantifiable target fundraising goal to support their mission. The more funds raised, the more young women who benefit from the offerings provided through the iRise Above program.
