In 1987, a group of retired Blackhawk players got together to discuss their future in the Chicago community. In that meeting they developed a three-fold mission statement for their non-profit Alumni Association:
The Blackhawk Alumni Association's key objective was to "give something back to Chicago" and to the sport of hockey. Since their inception, they've awarded over 50 college scholarships to deserving young hockey players.
Additionally, they raise money for Illinois charitable organizations and teach the fundamentals of sportsmanship through hockey clinics and appearances. The Alumni Association believes strongly in the dreams of our young people. Dreams make goals and goals become the keys to life.
