Despite the challenges faced due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Belleville Senators are extremely proud to more than $170,000 in donations and contributions to the Bay of Quinte Community, throughout the 2021-22 American Hockey League Season.
That eclipses the team’s community donation total for its last full season in Belleville, when $154,000 was given back to organizations in the Bay of Quinte Region, in 2019-20. Aside from some in-kind donations, the team did not run traditional fundraisers during the shortened 2020 season, when the Senators played out of Ottawa.
While players, coaches and staff were limited when it came to in-person community interaction this past season, the Belleville Sens were still able to make significant contributions through initiatives like CAA Chuck-A-Puck, Sens Community Foundation 50/50 draw, Community Heroes Night Presented by Bell, Rosebush Energies Food Drive Night, Hockey Fights Cancer Night in support of the Belleville General Hospital Foundation, Military Appreciation Night presented by Magna Autosystems, the Sens Friends Ticket Program and others:
- CAA Chuck-A-Puck: $26,388.75
- In-game fundraising through “Sens Community Alley”: $17,931.02
- Sens Community Foundation 50/50 Draw contributions: $53,311.80
- In-kind donations: $4,250
- 1,781 donated tickets: $38,291.50 value
- General Community Event Support and Donations: $20,000
- Belleville Senators Varsity Scholarship (Loyalist College): $10,000
The fundraising total sets a new bar for the Belleville Sens, who plan to continue to support and contribute to worthwhile community organizations, causes and events, through 2022-23 and beyond. That includes many of the same regular fundraisers, along with the Belleville Senators Varsity Scholarship at Loyalist College, and some other new initiatives.
