Cooper Nemeth Hockey Memorial Raises Thousands

The 2023 Cooper Nemeth Hockey Memorial was held on Saturday, March 25 at Gateway Community Centre.  The annual event is a fundraiser for the Cooper Nemeth Memorial Player Assistance Fund, which provides funding for minor hockey players within Hockey Winnipeg at the AA level.  Without this funding, playing AA hockey would not be possible for many young athletes in the city.

This year the event raised an incredible $22,010.37 which will go directly to assisting families in next year’s AA program.

The cheque presentation pictured above includes (L to R) Gaylene Nemeth, Lenny Baranyk Jr., Brent Nemeth, Daryl Fowler and Angie Beaque.

Applications for the Cooper Nemeth Memorial Player Assistance Fund can be downloaded from the Hockey Winnipeg website under the Resources tab for the 2023-2024 season starting in September.
