On Jan. 18, the JMSB MBA Bullets Student/Alumni hockey team played a charity fundraiser at Loyola against the MBA teams, both men’s and women’s, of Tuck School of Business, which is in Dartmouth College, Hanover, N.H.

Organizer Mathieu Amin, MBA Research Facilitator, JMSB, said that this tradition goes back 12 years. He sent us this e-mail:

“Every year, the team has first played against the Tuck team on its home ice, then play in Tuck’s yearly tournament (Feb. 7-9 this year) with such schools as Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Kellogg.

“The games played here at Concordia at the Ed Meagher Arena are always held in the spirit of charity. In the past, players and fans have brought in canned goods and/or cash donations for various organizations such as Sun Youth and the Easter Seals Society.

“This year, all proceeds are going to FANIA, an organization working in Honduras helping street kids get back into school by paying their tuitions which serve to feed and educate them during their formative years from K-Grade 6. It costs $250 to sponsor one child for a whole year.

“The MBA Bullets are happy to announce that this year’s proceeds of nearly $2,000 will sponsor eight children for an entire year. The Bullets would like to thank the players and fans who made the trip from Hanover and who helped a great deal in raising the proceeds going towards FANIA.

“The Tuck men’s team was very strong this year, beating the Bullets by a score of 8-4 in front of a crowd of approximately 300 people made up of dedicated Dartmouth fans who have made this yearly tradition the main student event of the year, [for the hockey] and to enjoy Montreal’s great shopping and nightlife.

“The game was quick-paced, but with no injuries or major penalties. The Bullets team were not out-skated, merely outscored.

“This year’s Bullets team was made up of current students, alumni, and even one of our professors, Dr. Alan Hochstein. The Concordia women’s team was significantly stronger than the Tuck team, shutting them out and racking up a score in the double digits! There was a great deal of cheering from the men’s teams who had just stepped off the ice and the multitude of fans who had made the trip up.

“Last, but certainly not least, the MBA Bullets would like to thank the sponsors who came forward with cash and in kind contributions. This year’s sponsors were: McAuslan Breweries (for the second year in a row), Dagwood’s Restaurants, Chartwell’s Catering, and the John Molson School of Business Alumni Relations Department under Cornelia Molson. Special thanks go to Lissa Matyas from the MBA program, Mike Rinaldi from the Athletics department, and the staff at the Ed Meagher arena who helped make the day a great success!”
