4th Annual Kevin J. Major Memorial Hockey Tournament Volunteers
by posted 07/06/2014
 
Please, consider volunteering for a great cause to support hockey, youth sports, and heart health. The Kevin J. Major Memorial Hockey Tournament needs volunteers August 8-10, 2014.
See details below:
 
Last year, the Kevin J. Major Youth Sports Foundation and the KEVS Foundation really appreciated the outpouring of support we received from the Westfield Youth Hockey Association's members and the members' families; this year, we hope to continue the relationship as we once again reach out to our ice hockey community for volunteers. With additional help, we will be able to provide more exciting activities and competitions, new auction tables, and a new snack area. I would love to see some returning as well as some new faces at the tournament this year.
 
The 4th Annual Memorial Hockey Tournament in honor of 19 year old Kevin J. Major, who passed away tragically from an unknown heart condition (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) in 2011, is being held August 8-10 at the Amelia Park Ice Arena here in Westfield. Players compete in a series of games throughout the weekend. All around the arena, raffle prizes, silent auction items, tee shirts, competitions, and food are offered for fans' enjoyment, as well as plenty of hockey to watch! CPR and AED training also takes place during this weekend. As a nonprofit organization, all proceeds benefit scholarships for youth sports, free youth heart screenings, free CPR and AED trainings, and donations of Automatic External Defibrillators throughout the community.
 
We are in need of volunteers to man raffle, auction, competition, tee shirt, or food tables for two-hour blocks Friday Aug. 8 (4pm-11pm), Saturday Aug. 9 (7am-11pm), and Sunday Aug. 10 (7am-10pm). Also, if anyone is up for some light cooking, we need volunteers for grilling from 11am-2pm on Saturday. Community involvement throughout Westfield is key to our Foundation as we want the Tournament to flourish and continue to succeed over the years. With involvement from parents and families of Westfield Youth Hockey, this can help us give back to the community of Westfield and show WYH what we're all about, hopefully having parents get their own children involved in this fun weekend (if they aren't already!). Through your help, I was hoping you could once again spread the word about the Tournament and our need for volunteers. I am hoping we can come up with 8 volunteers/parents, if not more, that would like to participate! 
 
Volunteers will receive confirmation from me about their specific volunteering times; please, feel free to sign up for more than one two-hour shift or more than one day! :) Make sure to secure your time slot ASAP! Attached is our official Community Supporters letter, which includes additional information about our cause and how you can help. Our website can be found at www.kevinmajorfoundation.com. Please do not hesitate to contact me personally with any questions by e-mail:megan.paige.beliveau@gmail.com or cell phone: (413) 454-8519. I hope to hear back from you soon! Thank you in advance for your consideration.
 
Kind Regards,
Megan Beliveau
