Rita Lets Kids Play

Rita Let’s Kids play is a program established by Rita Campbell’s daughter Kim in conjunction with Guelph Minor Hockey to honour the long time Storm Ambassador and City of Guelph Volunteer. Rita was known for helping under privileged kids by often buying equipment or paying registration fees. As such, Guelph Minor Hockey and the Storm are asking fans to donate any new or used ringette or hockey equipment at the game on Friday September 20th to continue Rita’s tradition.

Known by many as ‘the pin’ lady, Rita proudly wore a coat full of pins signifying the number of lives she touched in the hockey community as new and old friends a like would often donate to her growing collection.

Having passed away in 2018, Rita was part of the Storm family since the beginning as the head usher at the Memorial Gardens and then the Storm Ambassador when the team moved to what was originally called the Guelph Sports and Entertainment Centre, now known as the Sleeman Centre, in 2000. She officially retired in 2012.

If you are unable to attend the game and would still like to donate, please contact the Storm office for more information.
