Da Beauty League’s logo is a silhouette of Scott reaching down to touch the ice while celebrating one of his All-Star Game goals.
The Shine A Ligh7 Foundation supports programs that deliver youth mental health education and awareness across Minnesota. One way we do this is by hosting events to create community awareness of current programs available and raise funds to support those programs.
Da Beauty League was founded in 2016 because so many NHL players live or work out in the area throughout the summer. Players start training in mid-summer for the season, and it made sense to create Da Beauty League to give back to the community while providing a fun training experience for the players.
