- Once a Charger, always a Charger. This couldn't be more meaningful than when one of our own is in need.
Jess Boehres, a former player is incurring incredible medical costs
because he needs to go to Europe for a back surgery, one that cannot be
done in North America.
As such, his friends and family have gotten together to help him raise
the funds that he will need to have this surgery done, which will give
him a new lease on life. After living in chronic pain, this
surgery is the only hope he has to get back to a "normal" life.
The goal is to raise $10,000 with this fundraiser, and although that is
just a small fraction of his total cost, it will still make a
difference. 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales and silent
auction sales will go directly to help Jess cover some of his total
Here are the details "at-a-glance"
When: Wednesday Dec.9, 5:30-8:30pm
Where: at The Pint Off Whyte
Tickets are $15. (free drink with ticket purchase). Students $10 (sorry no minors).
The silent auction will have items for all ages, some items will have a
Christmas theme - so that people can get some Christmas shopping done
or purchase items for Christmas Parties and Gift Exchanges!
There is also an option to donate towards/arrange group gifts to "buy"
him things like a night's stay in the hotel ($150/night), a taxi ride
($30 for an airport taxi, $10.50 for 5km), or to chip in for the price
of his flights (totalling $900).

The Rams Show Their Stuff
Jim Skitsko, Coach of the Sherwood Park Rams, recently showed how the
club exemplifies the qualities that we all strive for in the minor
football community. The Sherwood Park News published an interview with
"the Judge" where he demonstrated the same grace after a losing effort
as he has after many winning moments in the past. Following an
insightful description of the game, he offered this generous
“I’ve always had the greatest respect for the Chargers and their
organization. When I started coaching, I wanted to build a team just
like their organization has, and in many ways, they’re still a little
better than us — and in many ways, we’re almost as good,”. (You can read the entire article here.)
Thank you Jim, please know that we feel the same way about the organization you have built.
