IAM District Lodge 6, Local Lodge 388, and Local Lodge 1191 sponsored a Quad City Storm minor-league hockey game in Moline, Illinois, that ended up raising over $15,500 for Guide Dogs of America/Tender Loving Canines.
The money was raised through a live auction of game-worn custom jerseys, online replica jersey sales, a jersey raffle, and chuck-a-puck sales.
A check of funds raised from the Machinists Union hockey night was presented on the ice to IAM Midwest Territory General Vice President Steve Galloway for Guide Dogs of America – Tender Loving Canines.
“This was another successful hockey night for Guide Dogs of America,” said Galloway. “District Lodge 6, Local 388, and Local 1191 did a great job organizing the game, volunteering, selling raffle tickets, and advertising the custom jersey. Everybody is already excited for next year’s event.”
