River Dragons Raise 5,300 Dollars For Bunn Family Via Hockey Helps Fundraiser
Columbus, GA - The Columbus River Dragons are proud to announce the results from our first "Hockey Helps" initiative, the proceeds of which are to aid Carolina Thunderbirds forward Michael Bunn and his family for medical expenses pertaining to his care.
With the proceeds from the auctions and raffles on LiveSource (plus a generous donation from LiveSource, on top of waiving fees pertaining to the items) and the Croop family/Ignite Professional Hockey LLC donation, the River Dragons were able to donate $5,300 to the Bunn family.
Winners of merchandise and experiences have been contacted by the River Dragons offices for fulfillment of their items.
"While we wish Michael's accident hadn't happened and this wasn't necessary, we were honored to be a part of this process in helping Michael and his family get back to some kind of normalcy" River Dragons president/GM Scott Brand said.
Over 100 people participated in either the raffles or the auctions to help raise this money, from both Columbus and Carolina fans alike showing hockey really is one big family.
The donation from the River Dragons has been made privately to the Bunn family. The team is happy to encourage those that are interested in helping this cause even more by donating to the GoFundMe page set up by the family which is approaching its target goal.
From everyone at the River Dragons, we thank you for being part of this initiative and helping a hockey brother and his family in need!
