Mike Ikeno Memorial Hockey Fund
Submitted By Webmaster on Tuesday, November 27, 2018
In the month of October, the month of Mike’s birthday, the Hockey Fund was able to identify 6 players from 5 families within the LJK organization and in the month of November was able to distribute funds to help them offset some of their costs of playing on their respective London Jr Knights teams for the 2018-2019 season.

The funds that were distributed were raised primarily from the proceeds of the 2nd Annual Mike Ikeno Memorial Golf Tournament held this past summer.  A special thank you goes out to all of those that participated, sponsored and volunteered in that Golf Tournament.

The intention is to annually continue to assist similar families with sons/daughters playing for the London Jr Knights.  We are planning on having the 3rd Annual Mike Ikeno Golf Tournament next summer to again raise funds so that we will be able to help more families with their 2019-2020 season.  The venue of this tournament is in the process of being determined as we continue to raise the quality of the experience.

Also, we would like to let everyone know that others wishing to donate to the Mike Ikeno Memorial Hockey Fund who may not be able to attend the Golf Tournament, can do so by contributing via the Gofundme.com link and entering Mike Ikeno in the name box.

Later in the season we will post another announcement with details on next summer’s Golf Tournament that will take place on the weekend of July 6 – 7, 2019 for those interested in participating and helping us raise funds for distribution next season.
