Help with medical bills.
Dan, or “Hoagie”, as he’s known throughout the hockey community, is our first referee to receive a grant from Dawg Nation. Hoagie a letter carrier away from the ice, and was hit by a driver while on the job.
In our first tournament, Dawg Bowl I, all the referees participating gave their fees to a fund to help Hoagie with his medical bills, and Dawg Nation made a matching contribution. Getting back on the ice has been a slow process, but we know that very soon he’ll be back, keeping junior players and beer leaguers in line.
