Hockey Team Supports Autism Awareness

Hockey Team Supports Autism Awareness


The SUNY Cortland men's ice hockey team will be holding an "Autism Awareness Night" on Saturday, Dec. 7, when the Red Dragons host Potsdam at 7 p.m. at Alumni Arena.

The team is raising money for the Central New York Chapter of the Autism Society of America (CNY ASA). Many local businesses and individuals have made donations or have contributed items to be raffled off during the game. In addition, the team will be wearing unique, custom-made "puzzle piece" jerseys during the game to represent the CNY ASA's "one piece at a time" theme. The jerseys will be auctioned off online through Dec. 12, and 100 percent of the proceeds from the auction will go directly to the CNY ASA.

Bidding on the jerseys will begin on Tuesday, Dec. 3, and will run through Thursday, Dec. 12, at 6 p.m. online.
To make donations or to learn more about supporting the cause, please contact Cortland junior defenseman Jeff Vanzant at or 518-565-7420.
