We are pleased to announce a new Give Blood Play Hockey event for Hockey Players and Non-Hockey Players alike!
Hockey fans are accustomed to watching the fight for the Stanley Cup each year. The Cup is a long-standing symbol of the blood, sweat, and tears that a team put in for the entire year of competition in the National Hockey League. Give Blood Play Hockey wanted to continue the tradition of a perpetual symbol of greatness.
The Blood Cup was founded at the 1st annual Give Blood Play Hockey in 2007. Teams that win in each division names are engraved forever into this trophy and it is displayed proudly at our home rink in Irvine, CA. The Blood Cup stands for more than just a victory; it is a symbol for the effort of the players of each championship team of their dedication to helping the community through support of CHOC Children’s and the Blood Bank. Teams at Give Blood Play Hockey compete for more than just this perpetual trophy; they compete for a brighter future For The Kids, For The Community, and For an End to Cancer. Congratulations Champions and Thank you for your BLOOD, sweat, and tears.
The Give Blood Play Hockey “Keeper Award” is given to a team that goes above and beyond. The Keeper Award will be presented at each year’s tournament to the team that raises the most money for CHOC Children’s. So Give Blood Play Hockey Teams…. GAME ON!
In 2012, Give Blood Play Hockey upped the ante for Sponsors by offering a FREE TEAM REGISTRATION for a $1000 or more Sponsorship. Additionally, teams who raise money for CHOC will be in the running for the Give Blood Play Hockey Perpetual Keeper Award.
Our inaugural Keeper Award was presented to the team that inspired this award. NAI Capital, lead by Sonya Grech and Ryan Dopp, took the challenge of raising $1000 for a free team registration to a whole new level. They not only had a team in the 2012 event and reached their $1000 goal; they reached out to their families, friends and business associates and donated $2,682 for CHOC Children’s Hospital. Donations ranged in amounts from Large to Small with the most inspirational coming from “Little Kid” for $1.
It is our hope that teams participating in the 2014 tournament start the competition a little early this year and in the years to come. The direct pay link is open here and teams can start raising money now. The winner of the 2014 award will be posted on the Give Blood Play Hockey Website all year long and will be honored at the 2015 tournament. The winning team will have their name engraved on the Keeper Award that will be placed in the trophy case at the rinks along with their team picture with the trophy.
Teams at Give Blood Play Hockey compete for more than just trophies and awards. Teams compete for a Brighter Future for Kids, for the Community and for an end of cancer. We thank you for your dedication to Give Blood Play Hockey, CHOC Children’s and to a Brighter Future for our community.
With your help, we can make a difference in the lives of children and help us get closer to finding a cure for Pediatric Cancer.

Peter Oliver Clauss was an incredible example to his 10 children and 30 grandchildren. After a lifetime of being a blood donor, his battle with Multiple Myeloma required him to receive the gift of blood from others in the community. These blood donations allowed him to spend another Christmas with his beloved family. His example was the inspiration for the founding of the Give Blood Play Hockey Tournament. Peter’s example of hard work and dedication inspires the “Give Blood” drive at each year’s event. His loving wife, Jane Clauss, has set up this scholarship in the name of her husband Peter Clauss to recognize a student that is being a positive example in their community.
How to Apply:

While 100% of any donation made to CHOC via GBPH goes directly to CHOC (any expenses are currently taken out of team registration fees), our goal is to get those expenses underwritten so we can donate that much more to the children in need. The more we give the better chance we have to help save a child’s life.
Won’t you please join us in our fight?

Dear Friends and Neighbors,
On behalf of the Give Blood Play Hockey Inline Hockey Charity Tournament organizers, I would like to invite you to be an in-kind donor and/or sponsor for our annual tournament and fundraising event in Irvine, California. This year we have raised the bar again. In our 8th year, we hope to host 100 teams in the tournament. The Anaheim Ducks will be promoting the events in radio and television interviews. Players will be there (pending playing schedule) as will Wild Wing, and the Power Players. There will be lots of fun things going on, but most importantly we will surpass the 1650 pint mark in our blood drive, and we hope to reach the $450,000 level in total donations to CHOC. It is an exciting time! By contributing an in-kind donation of gift certificates or merchandise it would be greatly appreciated and used as part of our raffle/silent auction. Being an in-kind donor is a wonderful opportunity to reach the public while contributing to the fight against cancer. Our committee and the Give Blood Play Hockey organizers greatly appreciate your efforts to make a difference in our community but even more importantly a difference in a child’s fight to survive this horrible disease.
