Chris Aquiline's Fundraising Page

Welcome to the EA Big Red Team Page.  

Our team has played hockey together over many years and we are truly thrilled to be part of the 11 Day Power Play Community Shift.  Mark Lenard and Chris Aquiline participated in last years 11 Day Power Play and helped to raise over $1.2 Million dollars for Roswell Park Cancer Institute.  Because 2017's event was such a community success we've decided to repeat it with a community twist. Instead of only 40 players dividing into two teams there will be over 1800 players splitting the duties of playing hockey for 11 days. This year's event benefits Roswell Park, Camp Good Days of WNY and Make AWish of WNY. 

Thank you for your generosity and support in making the 2018 event a tremendous success.   

ABOUT 2018 Community Shift

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 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.
