About Our Auction
This year's Matt Clark Memorial Shield is set to be the biggest ever!
Last year's event raised $11,500 for Leukaemia Research, taking the total raised over the past three years to over $25,000.
This year we have enough Former NRL talent to field an Auckland 9's side, lacing up the skates in between periods to help us reach this year's fundraising goal of $15,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Matt Clark's Story:
Matt Clark used to play Ice Hockey for the old Warringah Bombers Ice Hockey Club and National Youth Team before he sadly passed away due to Leukaemia in 1995. Matt was just 17 years old. The Warringah Bombers also lost their ice rink just 2 years later. Matt's last wish was that his friends and family find a way to raise money for Leukaemia research. The Bombers used to hold Matt Clark Memorial Games from 1995 to 2001 and contest for the Matt Clark Shield. The shield is now back in action from 2016 thanks to the Sydney Ice Dogs who wear Warringah Bombers Jerseys with Matt’s last name on the back to pay tribute.
The Ice Dogs have won the Shield in 2 out of the past 3 years and have raised over $25,000
The last two years have raised over $10,000 thanks to the help of Steve “Beaver” Menzies, Nathan Hindmarsh, Josh Perry, Dave “Wolfman” Williams, Tim Brasher, Nathan Walker and Cliffy Lyons.
