“The Flint Firebirds Charitable Foundation was created to support general youth initiatives and youth hockey in Genesee and Lapeer Counties in Michigan. The Foundation raises money at Firebirds hockey games at the Dort Financial Center via chuck-a-puck sales, live and silent jersey auctions and fan and corporate partner donations. In the Firebirds inaugural OHL season, the team raised and donated over $500,000.00 dollars in support of local charities.”
