Comets in the Community: Working with the Kelberman Center
by Janice MartinoNov 10, 2016
The Save of the Day Foundation, the Comets and the Vancouver Canucks, decided to get a jump on this hockey season’s charitable givings. The decision was made that ticket sales and 50/50 proceeds from the preseason game played on Nov. 9 against the Syracuse Crunch, would be donated to The Kelberman Center. The Kelberman Center provides state-of-the-art programs and services throughout central New York to more than 1,000 children and adults with autism spectrum disorder and their families.
Comets season ticket members attended the team’s preseason contest against the Syracuse Crunch free of charge. However, donations to the Kelberman Center were accepted when they picked up their tickets. As is always the case, Comets fans responded to the call. Due to their generosity, the Save of the Day Foundation was able to donate $10,739.50 to help ensure that the amazing works of the Kelberman Center persists.
The Save of the Day Foundation is proud to partner with the Comets throughout the hockey season to raise funds and awareness for many local charities. The next chance for fans to get involved is Friday, Nov. 11th during the Veterans Day, Military Appreciation Night against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. The Comets will be donning a specialty jersey featuring the stars and stripes. All game-worn player jerseys will be auctioned off immediately following the game. All proceeds raised by the Save of the Day Foundation jersey auction will be gifted to the Central New York Veteran’s Outreach Center.
