Fundraising

Fundraising for an organization, such as ours, is a crucial part of the "Hockey" experience.  Our program is compiled of efforts from all our families in our organization, which is greatly appreciated!  The children enjoy the game and the parents enjoy the reasonable cost.  We get drawn in with the instructional program, and before we know it, our child is on a travel team and the cost increases!

Many organizations do not fundraise due to the inconveniences and hassles associated with fundraising.  However, they also pay a great deal more for the same hockey experience that we enjoy.  We are able to keep the cost down due to our continued efforts in fundraising.  It is very important these days for families to be able to afford the expenses that come along with any sport.  We have been able to raise $25,000 towards the $50,000 operating cost per year due to our fundraising efforts!  This helps considerably in keeping the program affordable!

The fundraising meetings are generally held every first Tuesday of the month at the Cobleigh Library in Lyndonville and everyone is always welcome and encouraged to attend.  There are times when a meeting has to be changed or a special meeting is called, but we try to accomodate everyone by announcing this to key people who can spread the word.  The fundraising meeting dates and times will also be posted on the bulletin board at the arena and on the LAYHA website during the season.  

We would like to have our fundraising committe grow again this year.  If you are interested in joining our team, please feel free to contact   Merry Porter at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Fundraising Chariperson).

Upcoming Fundraiser Events

LAYHA Fundraising. Another season of hockey is about to begin!! 

As we sharpen our blades and head out in the cold, we have to remember that without the ice we would not be doing this! Ice time is expensive. 

At LAYHA we are able to keep our registration fees down because we fundraise throughtout the seaason. This year we have several opportunites to help with fundraising. Our wreath sale will be coming up at the very begining of the season-next there will be a Longaberger gift fundraiser to get some of your Christmas shopping done...after the holidays settle down, we can look forward to a fun night out with a Calcutta event... and wrapping up our year will be the annual LAYHA Auction. Throughout the season we will also be doing baked snacks at the Lyndonville House of Pizza watch for sign-up sheets at the rink! 

Look to your TEAM MOMS to get the fundraising flyers when that time comes. Any questions-call Merry at 535-5515 or email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  

Fundraising is a team effort-everyone can have a part and we are so thankful to have great family support!
