For 16 years, BYH has provided an ice hockey experience for dozens of less fortunate and at-risk boys and girls from Baltimore City. The Patterson Park Stars is a 16-week program of ice hockey instruction and team building for boys and girls, ages 6-14, in a safe, stable and fun environment. Each season, Baltimore Youth Hockey contracts the Patterson Park Ice Rink on Sundays from 9:45 - 11:00am. The children are outfitted and loaned new and used hockey equipment for their use throughout the program. In order for this program to continue, Baltimore Youth Hockey is soliciting donations to help offset the cost of the ice rental, healthy snacks and juice for the kids, new and used hockey equipment purchases, a holiday party with a goodie bag and year-end trophies.
The Patterson Park Stars hockey season begins Sunday, November 3, 2013. Equipment try-on will be held on Saturday, October 26 and October 27 from 9:00 - 11:00am at the rink
The program is currently in need of hockey sticks, hockey bags and larger sized helmets.
Your charitable, tax deductible donation can be made out to Baltimore Youth Hockey and mailed to Mt Pleasant Ice Arena - Attn: Mallory Richards, 6101 Hillen Road, Baltimore, MD 21239. Please see attached donation form.
If you are ever in the Patterson Park neighborhood on Sunday, please stop by and see the Patterson Stars in action. The kids love to show off their hockey skills, and the smiles that you receive from them will bring a smile to your face.
Anyone interested in volunteering to help with this program (no skating experience required!), please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are indebted to private donors, the members of the Howard Huskies, contributing foundations, the Tender Bridge and the city of Baltimore for their help in keeping our program going.
