WESTPORT RIDEAUS Press Release
After taking some time off the ice to focus on what matters most, the Rideaus get back to game action Friday, October 5th in Westport and we would like your help as we fill the Westport Community Centre (affectionally known as the “tin barn”) in support of our teammate Callum Maybury as he remains in the hospital in serious condition.
Support has flooded in for the family, the recovery time is unknown, but what is known is that his family needs to be by his side during this difficult time. The loss of wages, travel, and daily expenses, will accumulate quickly. In an effort to lessen the financial burden A GoFundMe Page to help support them was created has easily doubled their initial goal. This Friday that effort will continue.
– Proceeds from the games 50/50 draw, along with donations accepted that night, will be added to the Go Fund Me total under the name “ Friends of the Rideaus”.
– local area school children have been asked to help “plaster the rink” with Get Well Callum signs and posters.
– the Rideaus would also like to promote that all school children age 12 and under will receive free admission and promote they do bring Get Well posters to put around the rink.
IF you really can’t make it to the rink, the game will be broadcasted live on the internet at HockeyTV.com , and the Rideaus will also be recording for Callum and his family to watch at a later date.
Let’s fill the Ol Tin Barn, root for the Rideaus and show our community support for the Maybury family !
