Ok, going to start out here with a special shout out to Monica McAlister over at Octopus Thrower. She alerted me to the details of this story. Thanks Monica!
So obviously going to give you the who first, and the why…and then we will get to the how.
The who and why. Kevin Miller, former NHLer and Team USA member is organizing the raffle t raise money for a girls hockey program in Lansing, Michigan where he will be coachig in the program this upcoming season for the girls. Out of the league now, he is hoping and relying on the fame of his younger cousins to bring in the money for the girls to play hockey, a sport that the Miller family loves.
The What. You can enter the raffle by donating just one dollar. Each dollar you donate gets you one entry into the raffle. Its just like the lotto…all you need is a dollar and a dream. What could you win if you have the lucky ticket? How about a signed Miller sweater? Not just one Miller, but two. Grand prize is an autographed Ryan Miller Buffalo Sabres sweater, with second prize being a Detroit Red Wings signed Drew Miller sweater. (Favorite sibling much?)
If your interested in entering the raffle, all you need to do is send a check or a money order to:
GLAHA Raffle c/o Kevin Miller
1475 Lake Lansing Road
Lansing, MI 48913
Kevin will then send you the stubs for your portion of the raffle. All donations are tax deductible and go to the Greater Lansing Amateur Hockey Association (GLAHA) fund.
