Power Play For Prevention

Bulldogs Raise Money and Awareness for Breast Cancer Research with the "Power Play for Prevention" Program

Since 2005, the Bulldog Hockey Program has raised $95,000

Since 2005, the Bulldog Hockey family has raised over $95,000 for breast cancer research and support.  We are proud to announce that we will be teaming up once again with the Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute in a “Power Play Partnership” for the 2016-2017 season.  Bulldog Hockey cares about our community and the Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute is a valuable local resource for patients dealing with breast cancer.  We are proud to partner with the Institute to help fund and maintain a breast cancer survivorship program that will directly assist patients in our area. 

We invite you to share our passion and commitment to this cause and believe that, together, we can make a game changing impact in people’s lives.  We have a couple options for you to help with the cause.

1.       If you choose to make a one-time donation, there is no need to wait until the end of the season, simply fill out the bottom portion of the letter and drop it in the mail with your check.

2.        If you would like to make a pledge based on the number of Power Play goals scored this season, please return the bottom portion and you will be notified at the end of the season for the total amount due based on your pledge. 

All donations are tax deductible and 100% of all donations go directly to the Breast Cancer Survivorship Program at the Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute to support local breast cancer patients.  Please make checks payable to the “Power Play Partnership”.

We are striving to beat last year’s record of $10,019 (way to go Trevor and Sam!).  Meadville Bulldog Hockey is asking for your help to achieve this goal and continue to help fund the Breast Cancer Survivorship Program.

The women and families affected by breast cancer in our area are our friends, neighbors and family and they could use our attention, compassion and help when we are able to give it.

Thank you for your kind generosity.  See you at the rink,
2016-2017 Bulldog Hockey Seniors

Dogs Kick off Fundraising with new style!

Saturday was a great kick off to Trevor Johnson & Sam Kinestons senior project. They started selling chances to win "Paws for the Cause" or "NHL" corn hole box sets at the Survivors Picnic at the Yolanda G Barco Institute. Anyone interested in purchasing a ticket for the corn hole box raffles can stop at Eddie's Footlong Hotdogs or call (814) 724-2057 to purchase one. Additionally, tickets will be sold all summer at different events & will be drawing the winner at our Bulldog Hockey Golf Outing September 19th. Tickets are $10 each and all money will be donated to Yolanda G Barco Institute along with our Power Play for Prevention money raised this year.
