Calling all Utica College hockey fans! The annual fundraiser for Make-A-Wish Central New York is back and once again features a chance to win dinner with a favorite player, as well as photo and autograph opportunities with the team.
Throughout the season, fans can purchase raffle tickets at home games, which are played at Utica Memorial Auditorium. Thirty lucky fans will win. Names will be drawn Feb. 5, and the dinner will be held Feb. 16 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Valentino’s Banquet Hall in New Hartford.

Proceeds from this event benefit Make-A-Wish Central New York, which grants the special wishes of local children with life-threatening conditions. In granting these wishes, Make-A-Wish strives to provide the child and family with a bit of respite and extra-special memories of joy and laughter.
Make-A-Wish is able to continue to share the power of a wish® thanks to the generous support of individuals and corporations throughout its 15-county region, which includes Broome, Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, Otsego, St. Lawrence, Tioga and Tompkins counties.
