Midwest Territory Minor League Hockey Night Raises $18K+ for GDA|TLC

IAM District 6, Local 388, Local 1010, and Local 1191 sponsored a Quad City Storm minor-league hockey game in Moline, Ill., that raised $18,408 for Guide Dogs of America/Tender Loving Canines (GDA|TLC).

The IAM and GDA|TLC sponsored game raised funds through a live auction of game-worn custom IAM/GDA|TLC-branded jerseys, online replica jersey sales, a game-night jersey raffle, and chuck-a-puck sales.

IAM Midwest Territory General Vice President Sam Cicinelli and Midwest Territory volunteers accepted a check for GDA|TLC on the ice at a recent Quad City Storm game.

Last year’s IAM/GDA-TLC sponsored hockey night raised $15,500, and planning for next year’s game is already in the works. 

“The GDA|TLC mission is close to many IAM members’ hearts,” said Cicinelli. “Our territory looks forward to this event every year. Every year, we raise more and more money, and it’s a wonderful time for the members and for the GDA|TLC guide dog recipient guests who join us.”
