Gomez, Oscar Mayer team up for scholarships

Anchorage's Scott Gomez, who plays for the New Jersey Devils, has teamed up with Oscar Mayer to from a new hockey scholarship program aimed at helping more Alaska kids play hockey. The Oscar Mayer Scott Gomez Hockey Scholarship Program will award up to $50,000 in scholarships statewide to those ages 4 to 17 who play recreational hockey.

"Hockey is an expensive sport to play, and we want to make sure kids who want to get involved in the sport aren't turned away because of finances," Gomez said in a released statement.

Alaskans will have a chance to make contributions to the scholarship program during the month of August by purchasing Oscar Mayer, Nabisco and Capri Sun products at any of 10 Fred Meyer stores in Alaska. A 25-cent donation will be made to the scholarship fund for every qualifying product purchase. Up to $50,000 will be donated to hockey scholarships as a result of this promotion.
