In August 2016 The Shade Family Foundation in cooperation with Miami Hockey Alumni and friends of the University raised $30,000 to support technology advancements for the organization (iPads for Varsity members and tech equipment upgrades) to provide players the ability to review performance in games and practice and increase performance. Also, the event funded a chronological, graphical timeline of the program’s history within the hallways of the Goggin Ice Arena at Miami University. Special guests in attendance included Head Varsity Coach Enrico Blazi and Chicago Blackhawks Coach Joel Quinville.
The Annual Golf outing celebrated it's 5th year raising $20,000! We hosted 17 foursomes at Boulder Ridge Country Club on Monday, September 11, 2017 and are proud to have raised over $85,000 in 5 years for Union League Boys and Girls Clubs.

The open room includes lounge-style seating and a warm atmosphere conducive to gathering in small groups to work on projects or socialize. One end is adorned with a large fireplace, while the other end features a broad set of steps leading to a raised area that doubles as a small stage. The décor features images and memorabilia highlighting over 200 years of Miami Unviersity hertiage.
