$650 for C.S. Mott Children's Hospital from Team USA NTDP Star Wars Night.

Looking it up, the Griffins' SW Night raised $5087 for the Grand Rapids Griffins Youth Foundation.

Send a pm to sportsanchor about the Whitecaps- they usually raise $3-5K.

I repeatedly tried getting numbers from PHFF hockey last season, and they never answered me. :? Asking an event contact that we need the total just for our Legion-wide annual record keeping almost always works.

I asked Brent and Donavon last year how much was made at the 2011 Whitecaps and they said $3,000 was made. I pmed the command staff this amount and no one posted it and I was told it would be posted. So under Make A Wish Foundation for 2011 should be $3,000. For 2012 I have no idea what the total amount raised at the Whitecaps event was.

That was my fault. I had every intention on getting it posted myself(as we didn't have a Charity Rep at that time.) I got busy, forgot, and the PM got buried in my inbox.

Why is the GLG totals not listed for 2012 or 2013 with the 501st totals? http://www.501st.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 8&start=20

Jon, the figures for 2012 were submitted last year to the Legion Charity Officer (as shown below)
The figures for 2013 have not been submitted to the Legion Charity Officer, as there are still some events where I am waiting for the total raised.

Hi Scott,

Here's the total of Charitable contributions for 2012 from the Great Lakes Garrison.


Salvation Army $416
Matthew Litchfield's Fight Like a Jedi Fundraiser $15,000+
Anchor Bay Community Giving Tree $50
Gildas Club $150
Make A Wish $2537
St. Johns Home $50
Lumberjack's Foundation $365
Grand Rapids Griffins Youth Foundation $5087
C.S. Mott Children's Hospital $650
American Cancer Society Relay For Life $130
Detroit Tigers Charity Foundation $350


2012 TOTAL $24,785

There may be some more contributions from 2012. As I was only appointed Charity Rep towards the last half of last year, there were some events that where charitable contributions weren't recorded.
This year I am keeping a closer watch (and count) on amounts received.

Thanks for now,
Derek.
