The SUNY Cortland men’s ice hockey team will be holding its first annual “Saves For A Cure” night when the Red Dragons host SUNY Plattsburgh at Alumni Arena on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m.

The Red Dragons are raising money by accepting pledges for each save Cortland goaltenders register versus the Cardinals. All of the money raised will benefit “Saves for a Cure,” a non-profit organization with the sole purpose of helping children with their battle against cancer.

The organization was founded by former The College at Brockport goaltender Todd Sheridan, who successfully battled cancer himself, and over the past few years has made generous donations to the Golisano Children’s Hospital in Rochester, N.Y., to help re-supply and reconstruct its children’s cancer facilities.

Businesses and individuals are welcome to pledge any dollar amount per save made by the Red Dragons. Straight donations are also welcomed.

In addition, the Cortland players will be wearing special custom-made jerseys during the game that feature the “Saves For A Cure” logo on them. An auction will be held for fans to purchase the jerseys, with all money raised from the auction also completely going to the “Saves For a Cure” foundation. Bidding on the jerseys will begin on Wednesday, Feb. 15, and will run through Sunday, Feb. 26, at 6 p.m. online.

To make donations or to learn more about supporting the cause, please contact Cortland senior goalie Mike Reilly or call (607) 745-5635.
