Capture the Moment


From a drum containing the 293 raffle entries for a Super Bowl weekend package, President Erik J. Bitterbaum selected the winning ticket, which was purchased by Joseph Vallo, a 1979 SUNY Cortland alumnus. The prize includes two tickets to the Super Bowl in Miami this February, as well as hotel accommodations and $1,000 to offset travel expenses. The New York Jets presented the College with the two tickets this fall as part of their official partnership with SUNY Cortland. After deducting expenses, the College raised approximately $27,000 for student scholarships, faculty research and other important campus initiatives. Looking on is Robert Kashdin, an independent accountant from the firm of Port, Kashdin and McSherry, who audited the entire raffle proceedings. The drawing took place Dec. 1 in Brockway Hall Jacobus Lounge.
