Most of what Shannon Briske (BComm’01) learned about life he learned from hockey, like the importance of teamwork, commitment and perseverance. Now a minor hockey coach, father of three and Senior Financial Advisor at Assante Wealth Management, he attributes much of his success to his experiences as a student athlete with the ‘Dogs’.
That’s why Shannon and Jill Briske (BSN’14) have generously donated $200,000 to the Home Ice Campaign – they are committed to supporting a much-needed twin-ice facility for the Huskies and minor hockey players, providing athletes with the opportunities to develop as both players and people.
The Briskes are pleased that their contribution will help the community. Mr Briske said, “This facility will touch so many people in other sports and will be a venue that everyone can truly be proud of.”
