Texas Stars raise nearly $15,000 for Haiti Relief

The Stars' "Hockey for Haiti" initiative two weeks ago raised a total of $14,814. Congratulations to the Stars and media/PR guy Josh Fisher (who apparently never sleeps) for putting this together. Release:
The Texas Stars, in conjunction with the American Red Cross, announced on Wednesday that the fundraising program “Hockey For Haiti” raised $14,814.

“We have a tremendous community and fan base here in the region”, said Texas Stars President Rick McLaughlin. “We thank our great fans for helping us raise money for the American Red Cross International Relief Fund. We also thank the American Red Cross and our players for stepping up to make this possible.”

“Hockey For Haiti” generated a total of $14,814.00 over three home games last week at Cedar Park Center. The American Red Cross volunteers collected donations at tables on the concourse over the course of the program. Last Friday, the organization raised just over $11,000.00 in a silent auction that featured a stick signed by NHL superstar Sidney Crosby. The highest bid went for $750.00, a jersey signed by the NHL’s Dallas Stars. A Texas signed Stars team helmet generated $650.00, followed by Crosby’s stick at $625.00. Last Saturday, the Texas Stars wives, friends and family collected close to $3,000.00 by selling autographed pucks and photos.
