Worcester Sharks Booster Club Announces Award Winners
Thursday, April 16, 2015
Last night, the Booster Club donated $634 to Sharks Coach Roy Sommer's charity - Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress. The $634 represented $1 for each AHL win Sommer had as a coach (616), plus three more dollars for a win in the last three games of the regular season, and an additional $15 to represent the number of wins the Sharks will need to win the Calder Cup.
"We joked that if the Sharks don't win, Coach Sommer will have to give the $15 back," said Worcester Sharks Booster Club President Rich Lundin.
The Booster Club also made a $1,000 donation to the Worcester Junior Sharks Youth Hockey. "It's something we have always supported," said Lundin. "And it's something that Mike Myers and former Worcester IceCat Shawn Heaphy are involved with."
Finally, the Club announced that they will have enough charitable money to donate school supplies and Christmas presents to Friendly House, as they do every year, even though Worcester will not have a team. The total donation to the Friendly House is $2,000.
