The Adirondack Thunder raised more than $31,000 from its Stick it to Cancer Weekend in late March to benefit the C.R. Wood Cancer Center at Glens Falls Hospital.
With the totals from a 50/50 raffle, a paint the ice event, a postgame jersey auction and other various donations the Thunder raised over $10,000 more than the previous season’s Stick it to Cancer Weekend.
All the funds go to patients in the community to help cover the cost of gas, transportation, and medical copays.
“The staff and patients of the C.R. Wood Cancer Center greatly appreciate the community support during the Stick it to Cancer Hockey Weekend,” said Vickie Yattaw, oncology education and support services manager for the C.R. Wood Cancer Center.
