Joe Sarro's Fundraising Page

Hey everyone, so this summer I will be playing in the 11 Day Powerplay to raise money for cancer research with Roswell Park and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Below is my personal page where I am accepting donations in order to hit my personal goal as well as helping to hit our team goal. We will be playing on the July 11th session from 6:00pm - 9:50pm. 

If you submit a donation of at least $25 to my page, you will be entered to win a signed picture of Buffalo Bills Cornerback Tre'Davious White or Buffalo Bills Defensive End Jerry Hughes. I will pick two random winners on July 4th, the day before the event begins.

If anyone can help us reach this goal for a great cause that would be greatly appreciated!!

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.
