In 1987, a group of retired Blackhawk players got together to discuss their future in the Chicago community.
Their main objective was to "give something back" to Chicago and to the sport of hockey. In that meeting they developed a three-fold mission statement for the non-profit Chicago Blackhawk Alumni Association.
TO PROVIDE A SCHOLARSHIP FUND FOR THE "MOST DESERVING" HIGH SCHOOL HOCKEY PLAYERS IN ILLINOIS.
TO BECOME INVOLVED IN COMMUNITY AFFAIRS AND CHARITABLE CAUSES. TO PROTECT AND TAKE CARE OF THEIR FELLOW ALUMNI: "PLAYERS HELPING PLAYERS."
