PRESS RELEASE 2014 Skate-a-Thon:

Ice Station Valencia to Host 2nd Annual Special Needs Hockey Fundraiser on March 1st, 2014

Skate-a-Thon will benefit Valencia SNAP Flyers Hockey Club and their goal to compete in a national tournament in 2015

VALENCIA, CA - January 20, 2014 - The Valencia SNAP Flyers are pleased to announce their 2nd Annual Skate-a-Thon fundraiser scheduled to be held March 1st, 2014 at the Ice Station in Valencia, CA. The Skate-a-Thon will begin at 2:00pm and conclude with a special hockey exhibition at 5:30pm. Proceeds from this event will support the Valencia SNAP Flyers Hockey Club (Special Needs Athletes & Peers), specifically the team’s mission to travel to a national tournament in 2015.

The Valencia SNAP Flyers are one of approximately 60 special hockey programs in the US, and with most concentrated in the northeast and upper-midwest, tournament play can be a challenge. According to SNAP Flyer President, Dave Chase, “It has become an important part of the team’s mission to travel across the US and Canada to a national tournament annually, to expose our athletes to new friends, new places and new experiences, all surrounding ice hockey. As you can imagine the costs for such a program can be staggering, but we are determined to accomplish this goal and provide the experience for our players and their families.”

For this year's Skate-a-Thon fundraiser, program athletes, coaches and volunteers will skate for 60 continuous minutes to raise money for the squad. Each skater will solicit sponsors who donate for every minute skated. In addition, program participants will help sell raffle tickets and event souvenirs to help reach their goals.

At the conclusion of the Skate-a-Thon, participants will gather for a brief reception and a Raffle Drawing! This year’s Grand Prize is a  Flatscreen TV. Second prize is a $100 Gift Card from Zero Celsius, and Third Prize is a $50 restaurant gift card. Only 100 tickets will be sold at $30.00 each!

At the conclusion of the reception, the Valencia SNAP Flyers will face off against the LA County Fire Hockey Club for a special hockey exhibition. The puck drops at 6:00pm and admission is free!
