In the case where Rock for Hockey chooses an organization for assistance (rather than an individual) the amount of assistance given to the organization will be roughly equal to the amounts awarded to individual recipients during the same period.

What Else We’re Working On…
Skills Clinics Are in the Works
We are reaching out to rinks in the Mid-Atlantic region to schedule skills clinics run at their facilities. This represents an awesome opportunity for us to get our name out there, help kids become better players, and raise some money for our mission!
Small Venue Shows
While we don’t have AC/DC or Metallica on the books (yet), we are looking at small venues and local bands to get the ‘Rock’ in Rock for Hockey. So, if you are in a local band or a small club owner that would like to work with us, give us a shout!
Royal Berks Battalion Donates BIG to Rock for Hockey!
Our board would like to send out a big THANK YOU to the now-defunct Royal Berks Battalion for their donation of a little over $1600.00 to Rock for Hockey this past week! The Battalion was a non-profit hockey club that provided opportunities for over 100 Berks County kids to play the game that we all know and love. In 2013, through no fault of their own, they were forced to close their doors. As part of their by-laws, the Battalion had to find another non-profit to gift whatever monies were left-over after all of their bills were paid. They chose Rock for Hockey.
So, once again, THANK YOU ROYAL BERKS BATTALION for your HUGE generosity and continuing support of the kids and the game of hockey!
