A founding member and past chair of the ‘Off the Leash Luncheon', Shannon, pictured with his wife Jill, has been involved with the Huskies alumni group since graduating from the U of S with an honours degree in finance in 2000.
"The relationships and core values that were instilled in me as a student athlete remain today," he said. "It's important to give back to the program and community that was the platform for building such a strong foundation for my success."
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."
