2017 Survivor Game Officials Announced

Dawl Bowl Survivor Refs 2014 _Hoagie_Skip







Officials for Survivor Game – Hoagie and Skip

Dawg Bowl Referees,

Thank you once again for your incredible support.  I believe you all know that all the referee fees from Dawg Bowl IV went directly to David Topping this year.  In addition, Dawg Nation matched those fees and kicked in an additional $5,000 on top of that.  In the end we were jointly able to help out one of the most unselfish individuals that I have ever met.  We could not have had a better referee recipient than David, and I’ll never forgot his reaction when the check was presented.


The Dawg Bowl event shattered all records this year as we grossed almost $90,000!!!  CHIRA continues to be one of Dawg Nation’s largest supporters and I feel blessed to have crossed paths with the majority of you.  In all, we handed out four checks during with weekend totaling close to $45,000!!  All four recipients are members or our hockey community and facing daunting financial challenges due to injury or illness.  Generous folks like yourselves are the only way this is possible.  For that, I give you all my sincerest thank you!


The event was covered by Channel 4 and several of the local papers.  Here’s a couple of the links:



Please let me know if you would like an email indicating your value of your donated games and we’ll get that to your right away.


Thank you again!
