The Rochester Knighthawks will hold their annual Tip-A-Knighthawk event at the Mt. Hope Distillery on Monday, March 18. The eighth edition of the charity night will benefit CURE Childhood Cancer Association.
Fans can meet Rochester Knighthawks players Joe Walters, Tyler Burton and Cody McLeod, along with Knightingales dance team members, R. Thunder, Amerks legend Jody Gage and WBEE host Jeremy Newman from 6 to 9 p.m.
Festivities will include a raffle featuring Knighthawks and Buffalo Sabres tickets, jerseys from local sports teams, and gift baskets. The silent auction will include a 2013 team-signed Knighthawks jersey and a game-worn Matt Vinc Hamilton Nationals jersey. Fans can also challenge players to games on the Wii video game system for a minimal donation to CURE.
New this year, the Knighthawks will hold a trivia contest from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. with the winner receiving two suite tickets to an upcoming game. Other prizes include autographed memorabilia and premium Knighthawks tickets.
Founded in 1976, CURE is focused on meeting the emotional, social, financial and educational needs of families with children who have been diagnosed with cancer and chronic blood disorders. CURE has been a proud sponsor of the Knighthawks since the 2002 season. The Knighthawks, in turn, have raised nearly $30,000 for CURE.
