Chris Knowles Memorial Fund

A little update on ths status of the campaign...

We just recently hit the halfway mark towards our goal of $10k.  Thank you!

Again, once we hit the $10k mark, we will be making a donation in the name of Chris Knowles to Ice in Paradise, the Santa Barbara not-for-profit ice skating rink Chris and our hockey buddys support.  His name will be etched into the glass donor wall at the entrance of Ice in Paradise.  I will post pics  when completed.

I will be withdrawing money every two weeks or so, and will be in communication with Denise (momma) and the ice rink to coordinate the contributions.

Stay tuned...

Thanks again,

Friends and family want to add Chris's name to the donor board at Ice in Paradise as a memorial of his love for his community, friends, and, of course, hockey.  GO KINGS!

Please join us in honoring Chris by helping raise $10,000 to add his name to the beautiful glass donor kiosk at Ice in Paradise.

We love you, Chris #43,

Your Family!
