Officially on track to nonprofit status!

We are officially on track to nonprofit status! We had our first meeting of incorporators today to approve the Articles of Incorporation and elect board officers. We will be filing with the IRS for 501 (c)3 status very soon.

Grand Traverse Guns N Hoses Inc will serve as a nonprofit for much more than just an annual hockey game. Our vision includes assisting and supporting our heroes in public safety, creating a scholarship fund for kids who are interested in playing hockey who may not otherwise be able to afford to, continuing our annual hockey event to assist a local family in need, and adding other events such as softball or golf outings. We are very excited to watch this nonprofit grow!

Alyssa Lone

Call To Action!

Good morning everyone! I need a call to action for the Lone family. They just found out Alyssa will need to go down to Yipsilanti for surgery. They are in need of help with travel and lodging expenses in order for family to be with her. Please, if there is anything you can do to help them at this time, now is the time, and they need us. You can donate to them through the Gofundme account or message me if there is another way you can help.

Please share this and spread the word so Alyssa’s family can continue to be by her side.

Alyssa Lone

2016 Beneficiary

Our committee voted this past Sunday, November 1st to accept the nomination of naming Alyssa Lone, 19, of Frankfort as our beneficiary for the 2016 hockey game.

Alyssa has been volunteering with the Frankfort Fire Department for a couple of years now, but just in the last couple of months prior to her accident, became a certified firefighter.

Late on the night of September 6th, a pickup truck was hit by a semi at the intersection of US131 and M186 near Fife Lake.

Alyssa was in the passenger seat of that pickup, the side where the semi initially made contact.

The collision left Lone critically injured.

She was initially in the ICU at Munson Medical Center before being moved to a rehabilitation center in Muskegon, MI. She has recently been moved back up to a rehabilitation center in Northern MI closer to home.

Alyssa will need extensive therapy for many years. Her family is faced with soaring medical bills and travel expenses.

We hope to make the 2016 game our biggest yet, and we hope that you’ll join us in rallying around this family in their time of need.

In the meantime, please feel free to visit the gofundme page set up for Alyssa for more information or to make a donation.
