The University of Denver Hockey Alumni Association raised $6,997 this season selling 50/50 Raffle Tickets at Magness Arena. The program began on January 21st against UAA. In an ironic twist of fate, $1,000 was donated to the Colorado College hockey program (WTF?).
Two former Denver hockey players and one former CC player won the 50/50 raffle this season. Don Cameron ’67 won $929 on February 19th and Paul Koch ’95 won $617 on March 4th. Both generously donated a portion of their winnings back to the Denver Hockey Alumni Association.
John Kessler who played at Colorado College from 1968 to 1971, won $1000, the largest jackpot of the year. He donated his prize to the Colorado College hockey program. Scott Owens was reportedly going to use part of the money for a new perm.
DUHAA co-chair Rod Summers expects to raise $20,000 from the 50/50 raffle next season. The hockey alumni are funding a portion of the 2011 Hockey Banquet and will be announcing some much needed purchases for the hockey program very soon. Thanks to everyone who purchased tickets or donated their time selling tickets.
