Laraque joined IceJerseys.com in promoting their new line of Hockey for Haiti gear, the proceeds from which all go to benefit relief efforts in the devastated nation.
Details can be found in the press release:
On Tuesday, February 2, Georges Laraque visited the English Montreal School Board’s LaurenHill Academy Senior Campus in St. Laurent to accept a cheque for $6,506 for his World Vision project to build a new hospital in Haiti.
During the event, IceJerseys.com unveiled its Hockey for Haiti jersey, featuring a logo designed by Icethetics artist Gary Cekus, and presented it to Laraque on stage. Cekus was the winner of two recent Icethetics logo design contests — both IceJerseys.com's KractIce brand and the USF Ice Bulls' hockey club as well.
If you've been thinking about donating money to Haiti's recovery, as a hockey fan, there's no better way. People in need get help and you get a hockey jersey! Plus, it's only $75.
Laraque is of Haitian descent and still has not heard from some family members living in Haiti at the time of the January 12 earthquake.
Icethetics concept artists recently submitted 15 different designs for a Haiti hockey jersey in an effort to bring awareness to the tragedy.
