The ECHL announced today that teams donated more than $3.4 million to charitable and non-profit organizations during the 2008-09 season, including over $1.7 in monetary contributions. The Reign contributed more than $323,740 to that figure.
The financial contributions are in addition to the thousands of appearances by players, coaches, team personnel and mascots at schools, hospitals, libraries and charity functions throughout the year.
The total includes over $450,000 for cancer awareness and prevention, raising the total raised through “Pink” events the last three seasons to more than $1.2 million. The Reign held their “Pink at the Rink” night on February 7.
