Mike Foligno, Coach of the Sudbury Wolves paid a surprise visit to St. Bernadette Catholic School on Friday to present the Junior and Senior Kindergarten classes with brand-new tricycles, bicycles, and go-carts complete with helmets for their recreational pleasure. |
The items were purchased with funds donated to St. Bernadette Catholic School from the Sudbury Wolves Community Club 50/50 draw in March 2005. The donation to the school reinforces the Sudbury Wolves organization’s mandate to utilize proceeds from the hockey team’s fund-raising events to give something back to the community, and in particular its young people.
The students made their own Sudbury Wolves hats and brought with them Sudbury Wolves paraphernalia for Mike to sign. Coach Foligno entered the room enjoying a wild round of applause and cheers from the students and even engaged in a shooting contest after presenting the gifts.
Students and staff at St. Bernadette Catholic School presented Coach Foligno with a number of gifts as a token of their appreciation for the Sudbury Wolves kind donation.
