Littleton Hockey Association

LHA Hawks,

The thank you message below is from Kirsten Ferguson, the organizer for LHA's Rally For Rylie event. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kirsten for the countless hours she put in making this event so successful. We are so fortunate to have Kirsten and her Family as Members of the LHA Hawk Community. Please see her message below.

Thank you for all your support!

Brian TenEyck

LHA Hockey Director


Littleton Hockey Association's spirit of community and family is like no other, so last Saturday's display at South Suburban Ice Arena for LHA's Rally for Rylie was no surprise as they united together to show their love for the Guentensberger family.

Hundreds of families arrived showing their support for Rylie and her family as they took to the ice for an open skate with a surprise visit from no other than Av's Mascot, Bernie, followed by an impressive youth Skills Competition.  Between sign-up fee collections, donations, auctioned items, helmet stickers, #Rylie Strong Bracelets, DAWG Nation's tailgate, and Kona Ice, the fundraiser was able to earn over $14,000 for the family to help towards Rylie's recovery from a tragic accident that occurred two weeks prior.

A simple 'Thank you' does not seem like enough, considering how many amazing people contributed to make this event successful.

Special thank you's to:

  • TJ Tanberg, an LHA father and coach, for organizing and creating the on ice Skills Competitions where over 200 youth players tested their skills in 5 fun challenges.
  • Pete Palumbo, Joe Jordan, Jim Scott, Phil Heinrich, Bradley Scott and Francois Beauchemin for assisting with on ice Skills Competition.
