The annual Men's Hockey Date auction on Dec. 2, sponsored by Student Assembly’s Social Traditions committee, was a huge success, raising $708 for the Kelberman Center.
The Center, founded by cardiologist Dr. Michael Kelberman ’80, is a regional center for excellence for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The organization provides services to more than 1000 children and adults throughout Central New York and employs more than 175 full and part-time staff.
Twelve hockey players participated in the auction and many other players were helpful in the planning of the event.
Truman Landowski ’17 hosted the auction for the second year in a row much to the delight of the crowd. Jonny Stimola ’19 received the highest bid of $115 and Brandon Willett ‘18 was the runner-up with $101.
“Not only did the event raise money for a worthy non-profit organization, but it was also a great kick-off event to get everyone excited for the Citrus Bowl on Saturday, Dec. 5, at 7 p.m., at Russell Sage Rink,” said Ellie Ducommun ‘16, Social Traditions committee chair.
