Senior goaltender Todd Sheridan started the non-profit charity Saves For A Cure two years ago and The College at Brockport Hockey team will help to boost the fund raising activity for the charity on Friday, February 19th when the Golden Eagles host SUNY Oswego at 7 pm 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 senior net minder has solicited local businesses to pledge money for each save made by the Brockport goalies throughout the season.
Last year, during Saves For A Cure Weekend the team wore a special jersey, all of which were auctioned off with proceeds going to Saves For a Cure.
This year, the Golden Eagles will do the same and have ordered special black jerseys, white on the shoulders, with a SFAC logo on the chest and Eagle logo on shoulders. A jersey auction will be set up to auction the game-worn jerseys. The auction begins February 15th and continues through February 20th. The website for the auction will be announced at a later date.
Also, all ticket sales from the game will be donated to Saves For a Cure.
The Golden Eagles are looking for T-shirt sponsors, as they would like to be able to give out 100+ t-shirts that resemble the SFAC jerseys to help raise awareness. If interested in sponsoring the shirts, please contact assistant coach Mark Digby at firstname.lastname@example.org
