Original Email to CIHL refs on April 21, 2012...
Hi CIHL Refs,
Hopefully we`ll see you Tuesday. I also wanted to thank everyone for their work on the off-ice work and appreciate your patience with all the reminders, login issues and questions and comments throughout the season.
I wanted to surprise Ray (he`s not included in this email) with a gift. I`ve known Ray for about 12 years most of which through officiating. I think it`s time he can get a token of our appreciation. I know how much he likes sailboating and so I found a marina in Laval (http://www.entrepotmarine.com/nosmagasins.aspx
) in which I can get a gift certificate. I figure we can get about a $100 gift certificate. If we can get more, then great. This means about a $5 - $10 donation whatever you feel comfortable with. Less is fine, more is great too. I will go to the marina and get the certificate on Monday so that we can present it to him on Tuesday.
How to Contribute: 2 Friendly Ways:
Can you just let me know by email how much you plan on contributing so that I can get the appropriate amount. I will assume I will see you on Tuesday night or you will make arrangements so that night I will receive the $ discretely. Please do not mention this to Ray as it is supposed to be a surprise. For those who prefer to pay online, you can make a payment using the friendly link below.
In an effort to be transparent and make sure no fraudulent or corrupt events occur, 1-2 days after the dinner on Tuesday, I will send a copy of those who donated with the amount and total amount received. I think Ray will be very pleased and can serve a token of our appreciation of all the stuff that he is dealing with.
Comments, suggestions are welcome. Just please keep in mind that we don`t have much time to play with. Like I said, I would like to finalize the amount by Monday April 23 by 12 (noon). Please either reply with the amount of donation or send a friendly amount online. Thanks for your reply.
