Jaguars Give Back

Joe Ambroffi, a goalie for NIHL Peewee Schuman and Slagle, has added a touch of pink to his gear to mark Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Jaguars again helping 'Heals'

For the second straight season, the Jaguar Hockey Club will mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month by collecting funds to benefit the Pink Heals Joliet Chapter.

Throughout the month of October, the Jaguars will be passing around a pink "goal can" during each of its home games. The hope is that supporters of both the Jaguars and their opponents will place a donation in the goal can after each of the first three goals in the game -- no matter which team scores.

All of the money raised will be donated to the Pink Heals Joliet Chapter, the same organization that benefitted from the club's Breast Cancer Awareness Month efforts last season. Last year, the Jaguars collected $1,200 for the cause.

The local "Guardians of the Pink Ribbon" are an arm of a national Pink Heals organization based in Phoenix. Founded in 2007, the organization was formed to support women battling all types of cancer.

Each year, the Pink Heals National Tour travels across the U.S. in pink fire trucks and stops in different cities each day. The tour made a stop at Joliet Memorial Stadium in July. Adorned with signatures written in black permanent ink, the trucks serve as a monument and, once painted pink, will never be repainted.

The signatures on the truck are those not only of cancer survivors and, in some cases, those who have lost their battle against the disease, but also of anyone – male or female – who has ever known anyone who has battled any form of cancer.

Matt Fleck, a local Guardian of the Pink Ribbon, stressed during a stop at a Jaguar Hockey Club event last May, that the emphasis is not on breast cancer alone.

“We use pink not just for breast cancer, but because it’s the color of women,” he said then.

Anyone who would like additional information about the local Pink Heals can find it on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pink-Heals-Joliet-Area-Chapter/110293445779804. Donations can be dropped in the goal can at any Jaguar home game this month or mailed to Heartland Bank, c/o Pine Heals Joliet, 700 W. Jefferson St., Shorewood, IL, 60404.

    Jaguars to award Jimmy Porter Memorial Grants

    Once again, the Jaguar Hockey Club will be honoring Jimmy Porter's memory by helping three of its members do something that Jimmy Porter loved - play hockey.
    For the second straight year, the club -- in partnership with Jimmy's family -- will award three grants to deserving individuals on Jaguar rosters for the 2014-15 season. An award of $1,500 will go to a Midget player who has been with the club for at least two season, while two $500 awards will go to players at the younger levels of travel or house travel hockey. These grants, given as credits to the recipients' Jaguar accounts, are designed to help offset the expense of playing hockey.
    The Jimmy Porter Memorial Scholarship/Grant is a way for the Jaguars to keep alive the memory of Jimmy Porter, a 15-year-old Midget player who passed away in August 2012. In addition to the scholarship awards, the Jaguar Midget team will again play a memorial game dedicated to Porter later this season. Porter's jersey number, 16, has been retired by the Jaguar Hockey Club.
    To apply for the scholarships, individuals from within the club must complete an application form (see link below) and return it by mail to the Jaguar Hockey Club no later than Oct. 20. The application form must be accompanied by at least two letters of recommendation from teachers, coaches or counselor, as well as a copy of the applicant’s report card.
    In addition, each applicant must submit a formally typed one- to two-page, double-spaced personal essay answering: "Why do you feel you are deserving of this scholarship/grant?" An optional one- to two-page character reference letter from a non-relative may also accompany the application.
    Once all applications are received, the committee will review the submissions and select the recipients. These individuals will be honored at the November meeting of the Jaguar Hockey Club Board, as well as during the Jimmy Porter Memorial Game.
    If you have questions, please contact Lauren Walsh, the club's secretary/registrar, at (815) 603-1519 or lwalsh2@mac.com.
