The Dallas Stars Foundation, created in 1998, focuses its efforts on providing support to the youth skating
community within the Dallas/Forth Worth area StarCenters, so they may lead quality lives and
have the opportunity to succeed at their respective sports.
In partnership with the Dallas Stars Foundation, the Friends of the Finns Youth Hockey Scholarship
was created by Miro Heiskanen, Esa Lindell and Roope Hintz to provide monetary assistance and
support for youth hockey players in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
