Brooks Dyroff, BC senior forward and winner of the 2011 Hockey Humanitarian Award, just scored his first goal of the regular season on Saturday night at UNH - which prompted me to share a little charity push my section at BC games is doing this year.
While in high school, Dyroff helped co-found a charity called CEO4Teens, a nonprofit helping create educational opportunities for underprivileged teenagers. Their first project was to raise $10,000 to fund ten scholarships to help teenagers in Indonesia enroll in a computer class; since then, the organization has continued to raise funds to provide educational scholarships and job training programs to those in need, both in Indonesia and right in Boston by helping students in Roxbury achieve their GED.
As a way to show some support for Brooks and for the cause, the folks who I have season tickets with have decided to donate $5 for each Dyroff goal and $1 for each assist at teh end of the season to CEO 4 Teens.
At this point, he has one goal and one assist, so that's $6 per person.
Who else is in? Drop a line in the comments section so we can keep track of how much BC Interruption and Section OO will raise for CEO 4 Teens, then we can schedule a day after the season to send the money.
