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 2016 tournament start the competition a little early this year and in the years to come. The direct pay link is open on the Give Blood Play Hockey website and teams can start raising money now. The winner of the 2015 award will be posted on the Give Blood Play Hockey Website all year long and will be honored at the 2016 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.
