Here's the "more details to follow" I promised in the original Mustangs post. From the mouth of Georgeann:
Right now the banquet is set for October 14 at 4pm, tickets are $20.00. Place: Seven Springs Country Club - on the Website people can put in their address and it will give them directions right to the front door. It is being catered by Carrabas Italian Grill. Menu Chicken Marsala, Pasta Pomodoro and Salad. Dessert is being provided by Publix. There will be a cash bar provided for all beverages other than water or ice tea. There will be a 50/50 raffle, we have various gift baskets ex: wine, Chocolates by Michele, etc. Gift cards to Lowes, a tailgating grill donated by Home Depot, 2 months of free karate lessons, various restaurant certificates, etc will also be raffled. Our Silent Auction will be run by Sports Stop. Bid prices for things will start at $1.00 - $100.00 for the sports memorabilia they supply and the lightning organization has promised us signed Lightning memorabilia. We are trying to get a guest speaker but nothing has been confirmed yet. Our backup speaker is Dave Cole, Director of Fan Development and President of the Lightning Conference High School League. The team is trying to raise money to play for the season. It cost $23,000.00 to play, we are a start up team so it is costing us more than a team that is already established and some of the players need to get new equipment.
Can anyone lend a hand or contribute a few bucks? Check out the Mitchell Mustangs Ice Hockey page for more information.
(Writers note here: I'm no way tied or affiliated with the Mustangs but I am trying to promote local prep hockey in general.)
