The National Hockey League (NHL) is set to launch a championship fundraiser in support of mental health evaluation of murder. The proceeds from the event, which will be held in Washington, DC, will be donated to a local non-profit that provides mental health services for victims of homicide.
The fundraiser, which is being spearheaded by the league’s Commissioner Gary Bettman, is part of the NHL’s effort to support those affected by homicide. Commissioner Bettman said, “We believe that no one should have to suffer through such a tragedy and we are committed to doing our utmost to ensure that they receive the support they need.”
The fundraiser will include a series of events, including a silent auction and a celebrity hockey game. The silent auction will feature various items related to the NHL, including jerseys, pucks, and other memorabilia. All proceeds from the auction will go to the non-profit.
The celebrity game will feature current and former NHL players, along with other celebrities. All proceeds from the game will also be donated to the non-profit. Commissioner Bettman stated, “We are privileged to have so many distinguished individuals from within and outside the hockey community participating in this event. Their generosity will be a great help in providing mental health services for the victims of homicide.”
The NHL is also partnering with the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to provide mental health evaluations for the victims of homicide. The APA has agreed to partner with the league to provide free mental health screenings for those affected by homicide.
The partnership between the NHL and the APA is part of a larger effort by the league to promote mental health awareness and to provide support to those affected by tragedy. Commissioner Bettman said, “We are deeply committed to helping those affected by homicide. This fundraiser will go a long way in helping us to provide the necessary support and services they need.”
The NHL championship fundraiser is scheduled to take place in Washington, DC on the weekend of March 3rd. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the non-profit organization providing mental health services for the victims of homicide.
The NHL is hoping that this event will be a success, and that it will help to provide the necessary support and services for those affected by homicide. Commissioner Bettman said, “We are confident that this fundraiser will be a success and that it will help to raise awareness about mental health and provide support for those affected by tragedy.”
