Stanley Cup to Visit Casper in April for Fundraiser
The oldest and most iconic trophy in professional sports will appear in Casper next month to help raise funds for an amateur hockey organization.
The over 120-year-old Stanley Cup will be the guest of honor at the Casper Amateur Hockey Club’s annual fundraiser and dinner on Apr. 6. Organization president Kevin Whitman says some famous and infamous stories about the cup will be told at the event.
“I think it’s going to be a fun night sitting and listening to the gentleman who travels with the cup,” Whitman says. “It could be a good evening of stories.”
Whitman says the yearly fundraiser helps the club defray some significant expenses for the organization and its members.
“It helps us keep our costs down so we can get more kids playing hockey,” Whitman says. “For first-year skaters, we try to keep their fees around $125.”
Tickets for the fundraiser are $30 and include dinner. Tickets can be purchased at Bush-Wells Sporting Goods Co., 500 S. Center St., and from Casper Amateur Hockey Club board members.
