When the Chicago Wolves powered their way to the American Hockey League’s 2017 Central Division title, a large part of their success was due to the team’s power-play prowess.
The Wolves scored 61 goals on the power play during the regular season and added six more during the Calder Cup Playoffs, but those 67 goals didn’t just lead to more victories: They led to a bigger donation for Chicago-based Girls in the Game.
Dynegy pledged $100 to Chicago Wolves Charities for each of Chicago’s power-play goals during the 2016-17 season. Dynegy chose Girls in the Game to receive the donation directly, so the $6,700 check will support more than 2,000 Chicago-area girls who might not otherwise have the chance to benefit from everything that sports, fitness, nutrition and health education provide.
“Charitable giving is an integral part of Dynegy’s commitment to the communities we serve and we take pride in supporting organizations as a way to build strong, vibrant communities,” said Mark Fanning, Managing Director for Dynegy. “We look forward to another successful season and partnership with the Wolves and Girls in the Game.”
The Chicago Wolves and Dynegy have created a partnership where each time the Wolves score on the power play, Dynegy donates to Girls in the Game. Since the program began in 2014, the Wolves have produced 165 power-play goals and as a result Dynegy has donated $16,500.
We deliver more than just power to residential, municipal, commercial and industrial customers across several states. We are committed to being a leader in the electricity sector.
Throughout the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and Texas, Dynegy operates power-generating facilities capable of producing more than 31,000 megawatts of electricity – or enough energy to power the homes of 25 million U.S. families.
The four-time champion Chicago Wolves take pride in their commitment to Chicago-area charities, schools, libraries, animal shelters and other institutions. Chicago Wolves Charities has donated more than $4 million to local charities.
