Duluth’s turn as host of Hockey Day Minnesota will have effects that extend far beyond last Saturday.
As part of the festivities at Bayfront Festival Park, the Minnesota Wild Foundation presented donations of $52,500 to Minnesota Hockey - the group overseeing amateur hockey in the state - and $10,000 to the Duluth Amateur Hockey Association.
DAHA Executive Director Jason Watt said in a news release that the money given to DAHA will be used “for various grass-roots programs including Learn to Skate, Try Hockey for Free and Equipment Assistance, just to name a few. We are very humbled and grateful for the donation.”
Since it was created in 2009, the Minnesota Wild Foundation has given more than $3 million to Minnesota nonprofit groups.
The Wild and Fox Sports North team up with Minnesota Hockey and the host community to put on the annual Hockey Day event. Last weekend’s celebration in Duluth was the 10th annual Hockey Day in Minnesota.
