The Suburban Sports Group announced Thursday a new initiative to ultimately help grow hockey in the Mitten state.

The Suburban Hockey Foundation will aim to “contribute to the growth of hockey in Michigan by providing financial support and assistance to hockey families and programs in need throughout the state.” The nonprofit foundation will offer grants with details and applications to be made available in the near future.

“The game of hockey has been such a huge part of all of our lives,” CEO of Suburban Sports Group Tom Anastos said in a press release. “It’s provided so many great experiences and life lessons. It has also provided so many opportunities for families to create friendships and special memories that last a lifetime. It is our goal to help more people enjoy these experiences. We think it’s incredibly important to help families in need and provide assistance to organizations that create opportunities for kids to experience the game.”

The foundation’s first fundraising event will take place on Saturday, May 21st with a Cornhole Tournament outside of the Athlete Lab in Farmington Hills, Mich.
