A tremendous amount of support continues to surround the Humboldt Broncos after their horrific bus accident on April 6, 2018, which claimed 16 lives, affected 29 families, and thousands of hockey fans around the world.
Mike with his wife Shannon own and operate Spotlight Sport and Corporate Wear and have been huge sponsors of the Humboldt Broncos for many years.
On April 7, 2018 the Yagers designed a We Are Humboldt Strong T-Shirt and launched an online store fundraiser which donated $20 from every $25 t-shirt sold to the families that were directly affected by the accident.
The response had been overwhelming with orders coming in from all over the world. Mike took some time to talk to Rob Hart from CFAR radio - 102.9 and was able to share how the citizens of Humboldt are banding together in one of the worst tragedies in the history of Saskatchewan.

Over $300,000 was raised and presented to the HumboldtStrong Community Foundation on July 23, 2018. Monies were then distributed to the families affected to assist them with expenses such as travel, lost wages, funeral costs, and grief counselling.
As the Official Humboldt Broncos Merchandise Supplier, Spotlight continues to donate a portion of all Broncos merchandise sales to the Humboldt Broncos organization on a monthly basis.
We wish to thank everyone for their continuing support!
