There has been a lot of coverage of the Belleville Senators over the last few months.
There has been coverage on the games, the crowds, the economic impact, but there is also the charitable side.
Players have visited schools, stopped by the Tri-County Warehouse and also welcomed a Military Hero of the Game.
Another huge success for the club has been their 50/50 draws, which support The Senators Foundation
Sens COO Rob Mullowney tells Rock 107’s The Morning Buzz, the response from the fans has been amazing.
He says that is $68,000 for local charity, but another $68,000 worth of winning ticket holders too. On Wednesday night against Rochester, they will surpass $70,000.
Mullowney adds that the reaction to the 50/50 has gone deep.
He adds that the organization had a modest goal heading into the inaugural season.
The COO says some of the money has already started to roll out.
He says they will begin to announce more local charities which will receive funding from the foundation.
