Utica College To Host “Pucks For Posters”

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Fans of the Utica College men’s hockey team have the chance to see a great game and help out kids at the same time.

Tomorrow night at 7 p.m., the 12th nationally-ranked UC men’s hockey team will present the second annual “Pucks For Posters” event, to help raise money for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Mohawk Valley.

They play against another hockey powerhouse, 11th ranked Elmira College’s Soaring Eagles. The last time these two teams met was November 4th, during UC’s “Pink the Rink” event, in which the Pioneers lost, 3-1.

Assistant men’s hockey coach, Juliano Pagliero, says participating in “Pucks For Posters” is a great way to continue supporting the community.

“It’s a way for us to give back and, obviously, be a part of a great organization,” Pagliero said. “It’s a way that we can help these people who come and help us out by showing up to our games, and then for us, it’s a great way to give back to the community that gives us so much.”

Those attending the game can win signed pucks, participate in a 50/50 raffle, or compete in an on-ice challenge for a cycling prize. Wristbands will also be sold.

Children ten and under will receive a free wristband when they arrive and anyone wearing a “Ride for Missing Children” shirt gets free admission.

All proceeds will benefit the NCMEC of Mohawk Valley and its “Ride for Missing Children.” This year, the money will be used to buy a high-volume folder inserter for the Center to help distribute their posters more efficiently.
