Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino is proud to announce that a special New York Rangers Alumni Association game will take place at 7pm on Friday, November 3rd at the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center, located in Bethpage Community Park at 1000 Stewart Avenue. The benefit hockey game, which in the past has included New York Rangers alumni Adam Graves, Ron Duguay, Colton Orr, Stephane Matteau, Rod Gilbert and many more, is part of the Rangers Assist Program Presented by Chase and supports youth hockey programs such as the one operated by the Town of Oyster Bay.
“The Town of Oyster Bay’s hockey program has enabled us to work closely with the National Hockey League and the New York Rangers,” Supervisor Saladino said. “It is a tremendous honor that the Rangers have selected the Town of Oyster Bay hockey program to be the recipient of its first alumni association hockey benefit game of the 2017-18 season.”
“Along with Rangers Assist and Chase, the New York Rangers Alumni Association is dedicated to increasing accessibility to hockey in the Tri-State Area,” said Rangers Legend Rod Gilbert, “We look forward to the opportunity to lace up our skates and help provide youth hockey programs with the necessary tools to build character, foster positive values and develop skills both on and off the ice.”
Admission to the game is $20 for Town residents over the age of 12, $30 for non-residents over the age of 12 and $10 for children 12 years and under. Children under the age of 3 year are admitted free. Additional experiences are also available to residents who want to support the program at a higher level.
