Lewiston, Maine – The Portland Pirates, AHL Affiliate of the Phoenix Coyotes, announced updated totals for the inaugural Goals for Good program today. Each of the Goals for Good sponsors has an in-ice advertisement for the 2013-14 season at the Androscoggin Bank Colisée in Lewiston. For every goal scored by the Pirates from the sponsor’s portion of the ice, a $100 donation will be made to a charity of the sponsor’s choosing.
With 12 home games remaining this season, L.L. Bean leads in donations with $3,200 raised for Healthy Hometowns. Baxter Brewing Co. has seen 17 goals from their logo to increase their donation amount to Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice to $1,700. On Target Utility Services, will donate $1,400 to Maine Children’s Cancer Program, and Electricity Maine will make a $1,300 contribution to New Beginnings. The total amount donated to the four charities through 26 Pirates home games is $7,600.
The amount each charity will receive will be tracked online on the Pirates website throughout the remainder of the season at portlandpirates.com/community/goalsforgood as well as announced during every Pirates home game.
