GYAA is seeking some help from our members for a local coach, and business man. Coach Jesse Robitaille was recently diagnosed with colon cancer that has spread into his lungs.
Jesse and his family are active members of our community through sports and his business. Jesse has been a youth football coach for many years now as well as an ice hockey coach through the Maine Gladiators program. Jesse is also a self employed business owner who has a family, including two young athletes, he supports.
With this fundraising effort, we at GYAA, are hoping to relieve some of the financial burdens this fight he is engaged in can cause. So many of our local supporters have been affected by cancer or know someone who has.
GYAA is seeking monetary donations which will be applied to purchasing heating oil for Jesse and his family. Any donation will help us take one small burden off Jesse's mind while he battles cancer.
There is going to be a fundraiser being put on by the Maine Gladiators for Jesse and his family on October 19th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm at the Norway Savings Bank Arena (985 Turner St. Auburn, ME.) This will include an open skate, entrance fee of $5. Both rinks will be available one being a public skate(skate rental available) and the other being a full gear stick and puck. Concessions will be available as well as raffle tickets for items such as NHL Memorabilia and local gift certificates.
