Thanks, hockey moms

Posted: Sunday, November 21, 2010

On Oct. 23, The Blue Line Club, a booster parent club, and the Juneau Douglas Ice Association held their third annual "Shots on Goal" fundraising event.

Each year, this has raised thousands of dollars to benefit our children's travel expenses, gear and numerous other needs that allow our kids to participate in ice hockey.

I would like to thank many of the supporters and donators. Taku Glacier Lodge and Flightseeing, Bear Creek Fly Fishing, 8th Wonder Fountain of Youth Private Spa, Eaglecrest Ski Area, Alaska Zipline Adventures, Studio 223 Massage, Gourmet Alaska, Hallmark of Nugget Mall, Nugget Alaska Outfitters, Grandma's Bed and Breakfast and Georgia Sepel of Sepel Hollow Bed and Breakfast.

Also, thanks to Odom Corporation, K & L Distributors and Speciality Imports for their contribution and time, and to Bobbi and Mary Frances for volunteering their time and service.

Thank you to Abbey's Kitchen for, once again, putting on wonderful hor d'oeuvres for us and Evergreen Cab for their services. Thank you, Emily and Jenny from DIPAC, for everything.

A special thank you to Janice Peyton and Ginger Blaisdell, fellow "hockey moms," for making and donating their beautiful quilts. Thank you, Dianne Anderson, for your art donation, and Doug Woodby for a very lucrative and last-minute donation.

A few very special people that make this possible each year include my husband, Gunnar Noreen, for giving away his yearly evening allowed by being a DIPAC board member and for putting up with me during the weeks prior to the event. Also, to my special friend, Monica Casipit, for her wonderful decorating ideas and all the time she spends with our hockey kids, parents and events - she does it for the kids and it's never-ending!

Thanks to Beth Chapman, Nicole Tragis Noreen, Sara Verrelli, Nancy Lehnhart, Cassie Casipit and to my wonderful daughters, Kathryn and Julia, for helping with decorating and numerous other tasks I assigned them.

I hope I did not forget anyone, but if so, you, too, are greatly appreciated.

Last but not least, thank you for all those that attended our event. The support was fantastic!
