This February, the Utica College hockey team hosted a Make-A-Wish® Night, a fun-filled night sponsored by Dunkin’ Donuts. The event kicked off with a special surprise for the first 200 fans to enter the arena and a special thank you to sponsors for Make-A-Wish® Central New York President and CEO Diane Kuppermann. Then wish kids and UC Hockey players joined her on the ice for the Wish Kid Puck Drop.
But this is only part of the excitement. The week before, 28 lucky fans, who purchased tickets throughout the season, joined players from the hockey team for a special dinner at Valentino’s Banquet Hall. All raffle ticket proceeds benefited Make-A-Wish Central New York. All together, the UC hockey team raised an impressive $1,540!
Special thanks to Dunkin’ Donuts and Valentino’s Banquet Hall for sponsoring the event.
