About the Shuley Cup

The hockey tournament was an idea that I thought about for years. I wanted to provide a competitive but safe environment for my Wed night hockey group. Finally in November 2009, this became a reality and the first Shuley Cup Hockey Tournament was held. The feedback after the tournament was overwhelmingly positive. One of the biggest takeaways came from Micah Adler who asked if there was a way if we could give back to the community. Therefore in 2010, we decided to actively fundraise for charities. Since 2010, we have raised and donated $95,895 to charities. Every year, each team selects a charity, and the money raised is distributed after the tournament is over.

Following the success of the 2010 Shuley Cup, we decided to pursue obtaining non-profit status so that donations would be tax-deductible. With the help of Scott Parkin (Legal Advisor), Melissa Parkin (Operations), Micah Adler (Concept), and myself, we have created and sit on the board of the Shuley Nakamura Charitable Foundation (SNCF). The tax ID number is 45-2771318.
