Hi all!

This is the 2nd and final Saves For A Cure, Inc. game this year. The jerseys look great and the guys at Cortland have put a lot of effort into making sure this event will be very successful. I am very proud to be a part of it and humbled that they have chosen to support Saves For A Cure. Here is the press release copied from the SUNY Cortland Athletic Site along with a link to the Jersey Auction:

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 at www.cortlandreddragons.com/SavesForACure.

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

Thanks for the Support,

Great stuff! and kudos to Cortland and Mike Reilly for jumping on board with this. I'm still hoping for the SUNYAC wide Saves for a Cure weekend some year but maybe that's just a pipe dream to try and get everyone on board with that.

Great work Todd!

Yes Derrick that would be awesome. Hoping to get some more games next year. Yes Cortland has stepped up nicely. The Project Managers are Reilly, Christiano and Saville. They also had a lot of support from different members of the school and athletic department.

Jim: You had your chance 2 years ago. That was a one time thing. Too old and beat up for that! I also got lit up enough that day to last a lifetime. So will this be the first time I see Platty fans in a rink and not get heckled? That just won't feel right.....

I remember overhearing your girlfriend say, "I don't plan on pushing you around in a wheelchair the rest of my life..."

HAHA PSU, I always loved getting heckled anyway, made it way more fun!

Russell, I am sure that I will be purchasing a motorized scooter shortly! Could I bribe you with Pretzels and Dunkin Donuts Coffee to attend the Cortland game? Worth a shot.

Only if he's picking Cortland to win....if not Im bribing him to stay away.

And Todd if you didn't have a 4.84GAA and .876 save % against Plattsburgh it wouldn't have been so easy ;) Too bad you didn't have Cody and Finnerty back then for four years!!

In all seriousness is there a run down of events going to take place for us out of town/visiting fans not in the know. Probably not going to bid on a Cortland Jersey but wouldn't mind helping out somewheres else.

4.84?!?... multiply that one by 2 but I appreciate the underestimate. There will be a donation bucket. People can also mail checks made out to:

Jim mailed in some money for tickets for the Chinese Auction at Brockport this past year. There are always ways to donate and I am happy to help make it happen. Having the opportunity to meet the kids and seeing how SFAC is helping has been amazing.

I don't drink coffee and Cortland doesn't have pretzels (the last time I was there).

So, try again...

Hard man to please. One would think the 4 pretzels I delivered to you at the Brockport SFAC would count for something! I'll email Angelo, he will definitely be on my side.
