Docs on Ice Newmarket 2014 – A HUGE Success

Message from the Chairman:

To the Newmarket No Codes and all Ontario MD hockey players and coaches,  generous sponsors and donors, charitable volunteers, and the dedicated staff of the CMHA led by Rebecca Shields, please accept our sincere gratitude for your outstanding support of DOCS on Ice Newmarket 2014. An unprecedented total of $330,000 in cash and goods-in-kind were donated this year.
Our contribution made it possible for the CMHA to launch a fully staffed mobile youth mental health clinic in York Region, the first of its kind anywhere in Canada.

Other highlights of DOCS on Ice Newmarket 2014 include the following:

  • Our Vegas themed reception drew a huge crowd to try their hand at the black jack tables and sports betting centre
  • The Player’s Lounge at the Newmarket Magna Centre fed, entertained, and wowed over 900 players and volunteers each day
  • Our Gala featured an exclusive silent and live auction of spectacular goods, a moving tribute from Marsha Roy to her son Alex, and the ever entertaining Rick Mercer.
  • The world class arena facilities and outstanding service provided by the staff and volunteers from the towns of Newmarket and Aurora were indeed remarkable.

Thank you all for the cherished memories.
We look forward to our next road trip to London in April 2015!
