We can’t pay his fine, so all proceeds will go the The Tortorella Family Foundation https://www.tortorellafoundation.org
GoFundMe has decided that my campaign description is not specific enough, so I'm updating to give everyone a little more insight into the background and what will be happening with the funds. After a great press conference, addressing some officiating discrepancies, we all knew Coach Tortorella would be receiving a fine from the powers that be within the NHL. I quickly realized I, as well as many other fans around the league shared his sentiments and while I knew we couldn't actually assist in paying the impending fine, we could turn our frustrations into a positive. It immediately became clear that it would only be appropriate for The Tortorella Family Foundation to be the beneficiary of our donations. The funds will be going to assist local animal rescues, shelters, and other animal assistance programs with resources. The Foundation also focuses on children's literacy as well. For more insight on the kinds of endeavors your donations will go to, see the link above. The foundation has been named as a beneficiary of the account, and will be directly withdrawing funds to ensure a smooth and transparent process for all! Liz Willyoung, the foundation manager will be accepting the funds and they will be going directly to the foundation’s account. We will also be updated on where the funds are going and who is benefiting.
