Equipment Donation to Hagersville Minor Hockey
Submitted By Greg Bacher on Monday, August 21, 2017
In December of 2013 the world lost a great man; a family oriented father, son, brother, uncle and friend. Our fun loving, outdoorsy, thrill seeking, hockey-loving Jerret Whitwell was taken from us too soon. To honour him and to remember his life with us, an annual golf tournament, JJW Memorial Cup, is held the 3rd weekend of July. 



The proceeds from this tournament have many purposes, including giving back to the community. Jerret grew up in the HMHA as a goaltender and continued his love for the game through junior hockey, and amongst many adult leagues in Haldimand, Norfolk and the Cornwall area. On Saturday August 12th, the JJW Memorial Cup Committee was pleased to present Hagersville Minor Hockey Association (HMHA) with 4 complete sets of goalie equipment for the tyke program.Along with this donation to HMHA, the JJW Memorial Cup Committee also donated $2,000 towards the Simcoe Minor Hockey Association to assist Jerret’s son, Nash, and his teammates in their fundraising goals to be able to compete at the North American International Silver Stick in Michigan earlier this year. These donations would not be possible without the continued support from the JJW Memorial Cup sponsors, players, silent auction and door prize donations. Also shown in the photo are one of the newly purchased nets and ice dividers purchased by Hagersville Minor Hockey Association.
