    They have exceeded all expectations w/ this worthwhile crowd sourcing. When I jumped in on Saturday the goal was $500 and and they weren't even half way there.

    Which group appears to have started the hockey crowdsourcing? Website? Is it via the Foundation's link?

    Thank you for the clarification and student club's website link. The Blue Line student support group's initiative is certainly noble, but my donations will continue to more directly support actual hockey program development, recruiting, facilities, etc. To be clear, in no way does my personal preference in any way denigrate the student pep club's positive program promotional effort nor others' donation preferences. Maybe I'll give a little to the pep club as well.
