In our opinion, here are the 3 most important events in the history of Aquinas College:
- December, 1225: the birth of St. Thomas Aquinas
- September, 1886: the birth of Aquinas College
- October, 2012: the birth of Aquinas College Hockey
As Aquinas celebrates its 125th anniversary, we would like to invite you to participate in the development of the Aquinas College Saints newest athletic program - men’s ice hockey. As you may have heard by now, the Saints will be taking the ice beginning in the fall of 2012 facing off against such well know rivalries such as Calvin, Hope, Davenport, and Grand Valley in the highly competitive Michigan Collegiate Hockey Conference (MCHC).
As you can imagine, annual operating costs for a competitive collegiate athletic program are not insignificant. The Aquinas College Hockey Program will have an estimated annual budget of sixty thousand dollars. Thankfully the Aquinas College Administration has initially approved an annual operating budget of one-half of the required funding for our newest athletic program.
So we need your help!
We are looking to raise $25,000 to assist us in getting this program of the ground
(…or “ice” if you prefer!)
In addition to the benefits associated with donating funds to a registered 501 c3 organization, along with the grateful appreciation of Saints Hockey, for those who donate at least $100.00 we will gladly send you 2 Aquinas College Athletic Season Passes which will get you into any Aquinas College Athletic Event…including all Saints Hockey home games as well as receipt of your gift.
As you review your charitable giving opportunities Saints Hockey would be honored and appreciative for your consideration in assisting us in making the
Aquinas College Men’s Ice Hockey the very best college hockey program!
