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.
