Community Partnership at its Best - Part 2!
Media Release: November 30, 2023
Mount Forest, ON (December 2023): Young’s Home Hardware and the Mount Forest Patriots are back in action, in support of the Louise Marshall Hospital (LMH) Foundation in Mount Forest.
Last December, Marty and Joanne Young, owners of Young’s Home Hardware pledged $50 to the LMH Foundation for each goal scored by the Mount Forest Patriots, beginning December 3rd and running through the end of the season.
The Patriots finished out the 2022-2023 regular season in first place, clinching the North Pollock Division championship. When their season came to an end, ultimately defeated by Stayner in the 3rd round of the playoffs, they had scored 183 goals over the course of the fundraiser, and Young’s Home Hardware made a donation of $9,150 to the LMH Foundation.
Young’s Home Hardware has reinstated this fundraiser for a second year, only this time they have dialed it all the way back to the beginning of the season. Currently in second place in the North Pollock division, just one point behind the Hanover Barons, the Mount Forest Patriots have scored 94 goals as of November 25th, which brings Young’s total donation to $4,700 to date.
“We are excited to bring back this fundraiser for a second year, in support of the LMH Foundation,” said Marty Young, “and we can’t wait to see how the Patriots season plays out.”
The Mount Forest Patriots take on the Walkerton Capitals December 9th, on home ice at the Mount Forest & District Sports Complex. Puck drops at 8pm. See you at the rink!
