300 Community Appearances!

June 11, 2012

What a year it has been in the community for the Adirondack Phantoms.The team has officially reached their lofty and incredible goal of 300 appearances in the North Country.

The milestone was achieved with today's GOAL program at Lake Avenue Elementary in Saratoga featuring Dax and Phantoms' staff as well as dozens of excited kids all having a great time. GOAL is the team's innovative "Get Out and Live" campaign for area schools that strives to educate kids about the benefits of healthy eating and an active lifestyle.

"We worked hard to get out into the community even more than last year and we are extremely pleased that we were able to accomplish that," Phantoms Director of Fun and Community Development Andrew Hill said. "300 was a really large number to shoot for and we are all so proud we were able to make it."

Last year, the Phantoms made over 200 appearances in the community. They set an even higher standard for this year and were able to achieve it with plenty of time to spare before the conclusion of the team's community calendar year on June 30.

On the team's way to an incredible 300 community appearances were a wide variety of events and venues for Dax, the players and the team's front-office staff. The Phantoms appeared at area schools, hospitals, chamber functions, Salvation Army events and more. They were also around the North Country at many fairs, parades, youth hockey practices and ribbon cuttings while additionally taking part in multiple celebrity bartending appearances for charity and different special deliveries.

Some of the important events and organizations with whom Dax and the Phantoms participated were the American Cancer Society, Upstate NY Autism Awareness, MDA, YMCA, South High Marathon Dance, C.R. Wood Cancer Center at Glens Falls Hospital, Special Olympics of NY, Boy Scouts of America, Salvation Army and more.

"It was easy to see the Phantoms pretty much everywhere you turned in the community," Hill said. "Dax and the players were everywhere! There are so many worthy causes. And we are honored to be affiliated with so many great people doing all these terrific things for the community. "

The impressive achievement of 300 appearances would not have been possible without the participation of all the fans and the encouragement and invitations of so many worthwhile groups, organizations and schools. They were excited to be able to incorporate their Adirondack Phantoms into some wonderful efforts and causes designed to make our community the very best it can be.
