Junior Todd Sheridan (Edison, NJ) started the Saves For A Cure charity organization nearly two years ago and The College at Brockport Hockey team will help to boost the fund raising activity for the charity with a special weekend of events Friday and Saturday, February 13-14 when the Golden Eagles will play SUNY Oswego and SUNY Cortland at 7 pm each night in the Tuttle North Ice Arena in Brockport.
Sheridan, a cancer survivor, started the charity effort to raise money to help children in the Rochester area better cope with the challenges of undergoing cancer treatments at the Golisano Children’s Hospital in Rochester. The junior net minder has solicited local businesses to pledge money for each save made by the Brockport goalies throughout the season. The Saves For A Cure Weekend was started last year with the Brockport Athletic Department donating all of the ticket sales revenue to the charity.
This year, the Golden Eagles have ordered special jerseys with the Saves For a Cure logo on the front to wear during the two weekend games. A jersey auction has been set up to auction the game-worn jerseys from the games. The auction begins February 8 and continues through February 19. The auction can be found on-line at:
