Top Dawg vs The Steamboat Mountain Screamers
On July 23rd, the Top Dawgs are heading to an exhibition game in the mountains! Steamboat Springs has put together a team to take on your Top Dawgs, and, as is the case with Dawg Nation events, there will be a fair amount of giving back as well! Festivities will kick off on Friday the 22nd with a meet and greet at "The Bus Stop", an auxiliary of Storm Peak Brewing. Players from both teams will be in attendance, and some auction items may be made available. Saturday is the big day, though, with game time set for 4 pm at the Howelsen Ice Arena, at 285 Howelsen Parkway, in downtown Steamboat!
We invite you to get your tickets ($20) for the event by emailing [email protected], or at the door, cash or card. That said, there are only so many available, so buy now! A list of auction items will be available, and there will be plenty of opportunities to meet the players! Backdoor Burger, How Ya Doin Pizza, and O'neills Tavern will be bringing in dinner for a meet and greet in the rink, following the game! It is the Top Dawgs vs the Steamboat Mtn. Screamers, presented by Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation, and Never Far from Home! Sponsorship opportunities are available today!

Stand Up for DAWG Nation
2022 Comedy Night is set for October 26th!
We are grateful for our partnership with Comedy Works South at The Landmark. Over the past 11 years, we have laughed and cried our way to helping more people through this event. Mike Raftery and the Comedy Works team provide a fun and welcoming atmosphere.
DAWG Nation showed up with full force once again and set a new fundraising record for during our 11th Stand Up for DAWG Nation Comedy Night. Thank you for your commitment and support!
We toasted to Miles Batchelder and family John and Krista Batchelder in celebration of Miles ringing the remission bell. We shared laughs with our dear friends from St. Louis, Jon Orelt and teammates Jared Schmierbach and Matthew Heath. We cheered on Van Stone and Nicole Stone for his return to the ice. Of course the night wouldn't be complete without a check presentation. We were honored to surprise Joe Bradley with a check and a Survivor jersey to celebrate his victory over cancer. We are honored to walk alongside these families in their journeys.
We are able to make these memorable moments possible, thanks to your commitment and donations. Special thanks to Eric Goodman for helping us to raise funds as a TEAM! And of course, our comedians, Derrick Stroup, Geoff Tice and Talon Saucerman stole the show and provided us all with a much needed belly laugh!
