Stoneman Benefit Fundraiser Announcement

February 24th @ Ellenton Ice Sports and Sports Complex

The Gulf Coast Flames U-14 @ 2004 Florida Alliance are running a joint fundraiser to raise funds to support people of Douglas High School. Members of the Florida Panthers U-14 AA team were directly involved in this incident with injuries and involved in the school lockdown. This is a great way for the Tampa hockey community to come together and support a fellow hockey player in our state. We will have a table set for donations. For people interested in staying for the games there will be a goal can with an option to donate with every goal scored by each team. If it is a dollar or more anything we could do to help is our goal. After the first game, we will be taking a picture and sending him a get-well card that will be signed by anyone interested in helping him get through this tragic time and sent to player from this team. The donations will be made to the fund being set up with the player’s names from the Florida Panthers U-14 team.

Let’s show our support not only as a Tampa hockey community but Florida hockey community. If you are unable to attend however would like to donate to the Douglas fund, you can reach out to me directly (
