FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MAKE-A-WISH CENTRAL NEW YORK NAMED BENEFICIARY OF SPORT MANAGEMENT CLUB’S FIFTEENTH ANNUAL CHARITY SPORTS AUCTION ON NOVEMBER 16, 2019
The Sport Management (SPM) Club at Syracuse University announced Make-A-Wish Central New York as the beneficiary of its 15th Annual Charity Sports Auction. The auction will take place in conjunction with the SU men's basketball game versus Seattle University on November 16, 2019. The SPM Club is a student-run organization in the Falk College’s Sport Management Department. Over the past 14 years, the Sport Management Club has raised over $475,000 for local charities.
“’Thank you’ does not feel adequate as we know what this amazing group of students can accomplish. As the beneficiary of the 2019 Sport Management Club Charity Sports Auction, they, together with our generous community, will help to fulfill many of the 150 wishes currently in our pipeline – right here in Central New York. Together, we will transform lives one wish at a time – and for that, we are most grateful,” said Diane Kuppermann, Make-A-Wish Central New York President and CEO.
Make-A-Wish Central New York grants the wishes of critically ill children in their 15-county footprint, striving to say YES to every eligible child. Research shows that a wish builds the physical and emotional strength a child needs to fight, and often overcome their illness, and they need our help now.
Purchase of a game ticket for the Syracuse men’s basketball game is necessary for access to the auction and can be purchased on the SU Athletics’ website (cuse.com) or at the Carrier Dome Box Office. Tickets can also be ordered by phone at 1-800-DOMETIX.
