The Mike Ikeno Memorial Hockey Fund
Submitted By Webmaster on Wednesday, November 15, 2017
The Mike Ikeno Memorial Hockey Fund was established during the summer of 2016 to help families that may require financial assistance to play hockey in London.  Mike believed that every kid should have a chance to play the game that he loved so much at the level suitable to their skill level.

At the end of October, the month of Mike’s birthday, the Hockey Fund was able to financially assist 5 families within the LJK organization with funds to help them offset some of their costs of playing on their respective London Jr. Knight’s teams for the 2017 – 2018 season.  The 1st Annual Mike Ikeno Memorial Golf Tournament held last summer on July 8th was the primary fundraiser that enabled us to help these families, so a special thank you goes out all of those that participated in that Golf Tournament.

The intention is to annually continue to assist similar families with sons/daughters playing for the London Jr Knights.  We plan on having a 2nd Annual Mike Ikeno Golf Tournament on July 8th, 2018 at Green Hills Golf Club to again raise funds to allow us to help out more families with their 2018 – 2019 season.  In addition, a “Go Fund Me” account has been established to enable others wishing to donate to the Mike Ikeno Memorial Hockey Fund to contribute throughout the year. If anyone would like to contribute to the Mike Ikeno Memorial Hockey Fund the link is Gofundme.com and enter Mike Ikeno in the name box. 

Also, if you are interested in assisting with the 2nd Annual Mike Ikeno Memorial Golf Tournament please contact Don/Su Ikeno at 519-661-7075 or Riye (Ikeno) Balch at 226-678-3047.
