As with many other families, cancer is something that has hit close to our home multiple times. We have been fortunate to see some beat it, but have also experienced those losing their battle way too young. We are honored to participate in the 11 Day Power Play in support of those who have been impacted by cancer and in an effort to help those who may have to face it in the future. We are playing in the memory of Betsy Whistler and Patrick Waldron, as well as grandparents, aunts and uncles that have also suffered from cancer.
We are scheduled to play Sunday, July 8, 2018 from 6 A.M. to 10 A.M. Come cheer us on!!
This summer, more than 1,700 pairs of skates will hit the ice to play in the 2018 11 Day Power Play Community Shift to help in the fight against cancer! The 11-day game will be played in continuous, four-hour shifts at HarborCenter in Buffalo, New York. Each shift will feature two new teams. The purpose of this important event is to raise critically-needed funds for important local cancer causes, including: cutting-edge cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center; supporting programs that improve quality of life for children, adults and families affected by cancer through Camp Good Days; and, granting wishes and amazing experiences to kids with life-threatening illnesses, including cancer, by Make-A-Wish Western New York. Although it may be physically challenging for our players to play four continuous hours of hockey, it will be a walk in the park compared to what some people have to endure in their battle against cancer. Cancer is a disease that touches everyone, and The 11 Day Power Play wants to make a difference, a big difference. You can help make a big difference by supporting our players' efforts in The 11 Day Power Play Community Shift.
As part of our fundraising efforts, we also offer various corporate sponsorships, providing value greatly in excess of the financial contribution. Please contact Sara Schumacher at firstname.lastname@example.org or 716-830-3805 for more information. Team sponsorships start at $1,100 and are first come, first serve.
Proceeds of the 11 Day Power Play Community Shift will benefit our local families while supporting cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park, Make-A-Wish WNY and Camp Good Days.
Donations are graciously accepted either online or by check. Please write checks out to 'The 11 Day Power Play' and send to PO Box 4 Buffalo NY 14223.
