|Adam, Monique & Shadow Pineault When He Was Playing For Pardubice, Czech Republic|
|Raffle Items, Silent Auction & Live Auctions Items On Display|
The live auction immediately after the game was a huge success because of some very generous fans that I won't name here because I didn't get their permission but the amount raised from the live auction of jerseys with Lee Hastings as the auctioneer included:
Jarret Lukin - $1400
Darryl Bootland - $1300
Aaron Dell - $1200
Adam Pineault - $1200
Adam & Monique had a goal when they started planning this event of raising $10,000 for Martine. I got a text from Adam last night that the total raised was $15,818 which obviously blew away the goal.
Adam wanted to make sure I passed along his and Monique's gratitude to all of the Allen fans for their support of the Allen Americans and their generosity in making the Martine Durelle fund raising event an overwhelming success.
I want to add my personal thanks to Adam & Monique for their efforts not only with this event but their involvement in the community since their arrival in Allen. The player profile I did about them is still the most popular story I have ever written and also the most inspiring. I wrote in that profile the following: I hope I can share with you the passion, devotion, love, dedication, determination and positive attitude Adam brings to his life and hockey as well as his family and particularly to his lovely wife, Monique. Those words were true back in January when I wrote them but the are reinforced today with what Adam & Monique have done to help Martine Durelle.
