Mike DiVenere's Fundraiser

Donations made in the memory of Mike DiVenere will fund the donation of youth hockey equipment to allow members of underserved communities to play the sport he was passionate about.

You can also donate new and used hockey equipment at Leveling the Playing Field collection locations at area hockey rinks, including Kettler Capitals IcePlex (all locations listed below).

$5,110 towards $25,000

Leveling the Playing Field is a local charity that gives underprivileged children the opportunity to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of youth sports participation. We do this through the donation of used and excess sporting equipment to programs and schools serving low income communities. Our donations allow programs to allocate funds saved by lowering registration fees, expanding their scholarship programs, enhancing their existing athletic program or developing new ones.

To donate new or used hockey equipment you can visit one of our two warehouse located at the following locations:

9170 Brookville Road Silver Spring, MD 20910

1794 Union Avenue Baltimore, MD 21211

You can also bring donations to the following Washington Capitals rink partners:

Skatequest Reston

Kettler IcePlex

Skate Frederick

Reisterstown Sportsplex

Bowie Ice Arena
