THE FRIENDS OF MARBLEHEAD HOCKEY
of this organization shall be to foster, expand, and perpetuate awareness of and interest in the development of ice skating,
and in particular, the game of hockey and the activities affiliated with the game. This shall be accomplished by offering
financial support to those who cannot afford the cost of equipment, and by establishing a scholarship program to assist in
the furtherance of their education.
The longest standing youth hockey exchange celebrated
it's 50th year with much celebration and successful tournaments in both in Marblehead and Canada!
To date, The Friends
of Marblehead Hockey have awarded $200,000.00 in scholarships to college bound senior hockey players, both men and women,
and hockey cheerleaders. Upwards of $95,000.00 has been donated to Marblehead Youth Hockey to assist families in need to pay
for equipment and ice time. Additionally, we have contributed roughly another $85,000.00 to promote the women’s hockey
program, and to various charities and memorial funds.
We are most proud of the H. Hunter Craig IV Memorial
Trophy Case in the lobby of the Field House at the Marblehead High School. (It was our tournament of 2000 that raised funds
for this very project) Hunter Craig was a talented hockey and lacrosse player at MHS and a volunteer at many of our golf tournaments.
He was tragically killed in a car accident in October of 1999.
The 2015 Friends of
Marblehead Hockey Scholarships were
awarded in memory of Bud Orne
to Bryan Cohen, Cam MacDonald, and Mark Scribner.
The Annette "Big A" scholarship
went to Ryan Jones, and Nathaniel Witherell. Scholarships
in honor of Doris Vigneron were
awarded to Meg Gray, Alyson Hopkins, and Caroline Hughes .
Congratulations, good luck with your future endeavors,
and always remember that you were part of something
very special - Marblehead Hockey!
