The official numbers are in and our fans came
through big-time and in record numbers this year.
Approximately 1,500 pounds of canned goods and
non-perishable food items were donated by over
300 fans in our annual Salvation Army Thanksgiving
Canned Food Drive. This will help feed 40 needy
families in the North Country with about 40 pounds
of food each.
The 300+ fans who helped our cause by donating
this huge amount of food all received free tickets
for the Phantoms game on Wednesday night as our
thanks to them for their generosity this holiday
"What a great job our fans did in support
of the Salvation Army and donating food for our
community," Phantoms Executive Vice President
Chris Porreca said.
And our friends who received this gigantic donation
were thrilled. "The food drive was huge this
year," said Major David Dean of the Salvation
Army of Glens Falls. "I would say it was
two-to-three times more food than we have ever
had donated from the Phantoms. Awesome!"
Thanks you so much, fans. You gave and gave in
this season of giving. We are truly humbled by
your generosity and your support of our efforts
to serve the community.
The race is getting tighter in our Movember donations
contest with the players. The guys are growing
mustaches to help support mens' cancer issues,
treatment and awareness. Donations are being received
at the Phantoms home games in the names of each
player to benefit the Live Strong Foundation and
the C.R. Wood Cancer Center at Glens Falls Hospital.
Rob Bordson has taken the lead for most donations!
Cal Heeter, despite his ultra-goofy face in his
latest mustache pic, has been bumped from the
top spot. But it's a tight race and mere pennies
separate the two in what is currently a virtual
tie. Kyle Flanagan is hanging in there in the
#3 position. It's going down to the wire! Be sure
to donate during our last two Movember games on
Wednesday and Saturday! Don't forget as well that
our "Movember Finale" is this Saturday.
Last chance to see the guys in their sporty 'staches
before they go all clean-shaven again (well, most
of them anyway).
Thanks to everyone who participated in our Scoville
Jewelers Diamond Dig at the Phantoms game on Friday
night. 500 fans received valuable gift-cards to
Scoville Jewelers ranging in value up to $100.
And five lucky fans dug their way through the
snow in our on-ice pickup for even more valuable
goodies. The grand-prize winner of the $1,000
value diamond was Linda Williams! And Babette
Donlon was the winner of the 14K yellow gold and
amethynst necklace. Thanks to Scoville Jewelers
for their continued support of Phantoms hockey
with great promotions such as this one!
a Big Hit
Even in the cold weather, the fans were lined
up outside well before the doors opened. We started
giving our Youth Jerseys to the kids beginning
at 6:00 and then by 6:35 they were all gone. our
allotment of 1,000 jerseys for the kids had been
fully distributed. Obviously they were a big hit.
And the early-arriving crowd generated a terrific
buzz in the building and terrific pregame atmosphere
for our game that night.
Then, after the game, the fans gobbled up the
jerseys in our live auction. The players presented
the jerseys to our lucky winners and posed for
pictures and autographs. The one-game-only uniforms
featured our "25th Season" logo commemorating
our terrific history involving 25 years of the
AHL in Glens Falls. The Adirondack Phantoms are
in their fifth season bringing great American
Hockey League action to the North Country. The
Adirondack Red Wings played at the Glens Falls
Civic Center for 20 years from 1979 through 1999
winning four Calder Cups along the way.
