My name is Neil Walsky, I am writing you on behalf of the Northstar Szczecin Hockey Foundation (NSHF). To begin I want to give you a brief background regarding who we are, our mission, and how we intend to accomplish our mission. From a young age in Alaska I was given the opportunity to join an ice hockey program that developed me as a player as well as an individual. I first arrived in Szczecin, Poland the winter of 2014, quickly realizing that the same opportunity for children was not available here. That same winter, along with a few other motivated individuals from the Szczecin we began the process of building an ice hockey program for children ages 18 & under. The first trainings were offered with only 4 initial participants, however each preceding year more and more kids joined; bringing us to a current total of more than 30 kids. Due to the exponential growth of participation we decided to develop the Northstar Szczecin Hockey Foundation (NSHF). The Foundations mission is to help support players and parents financially as well as grow the interest of ice hockey in Szczecin. The NSHF handles the scheduling and management of all trainings, games, and events. We are looking to you as a sponsor that would be willing to aid in the development of ice hockey in Szczecin, Poland. NSHF is currently working on putting together an event called “Ice Rocket” in Szczecin that will be open to all children willing to participate. Through this event we hope to inspire children to join our ice hockey community as well as give kids an opportunity to participate in a fun and unique event that Szczecin has never seen. PLEASE HELP US MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!!
