Support girls hockey

Dear Editor:

This year, for the first time ever, Aspen Junior Hockey will be sending a girls hockey team to Europe. For the past several years, the senior boys teams have been provided with the opportunity to compete on an international level through games and practices abroad in Germany.

This year, the U-19 girls team is taking on the challenge to travel to France to compete with their European counterparts. As such, we, the U-19 girls team, are in full-swing fundraising for this experience. We are looking to the community to help us make this trip a reality.

The entire team is selling $10 raffle tickets for a chance to win a grand prize of $2,500 ($750 for second place and $250 for third). The drawing will be on Sunday, Nov. 8, during the U-19 girls championship game of Aspen Junior Hockey’s Fall Face-Off Tournament. If you are approached by any of our hockey girls or see us at our stations around City Market on the weekends, please support this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Our U-19 team greatly appreciates your support in this endeavor through the purchase of a raffle ticket. Come cheer us on at the Fall Face-Off Tournament, Nov. 6-9! For more information contact Joy Stryker at (970) 925-6990.
