It’s our Corporate Sponsors and
Fans who make it possible to give
back to our community.
    The Sarnia Sting is very proud of our history of financial assistance to many different organizations
    and individuals in the Sarnia-Lambton area. We are also very aware that these donations would
    not be possible without the generosity of our many sponsors and fans that support the Sarnia Sting
    Hockey Club.

    Hundreds of thousands of dollars has been given back to the Sarnia-Lambton community since
    the team’s arrival in Sarnia. In 2009 alone, more than $100,000.00 was distributed including the
    following groups.
