The Rochester Knighthawks will host their Second Annual Cradle for the Cure Game on Saturday, April 6. That night, Rochester will entertain the Toronto Rock at 7:30 p.m. at Connors & Ferris Field at The Blue Cross Arena.
The Knighthawks and Rock will wear special uniforms, which will be auctioned off to benefit CURE Childhood Cancer Association. Each player's jersey will include the name of the person they are playing for on their nameplate.
"The Knighthawks are excited to continue our partnership proud with a great organization like CURE Childhood Cancer Association," said Knighthawks VP of Sales John Catalano. "This year we are especially thankful to the Toronto Rock, its owner Jamie Dawick and the Rock players for participating in our Cradle for the Cure event."
"We are excited to work together and support the Knighthawks and their Cradle for the Cure game," said Rock Owner, President & GM Jamie Dawick. "As we saw at our team's charity game last weekend, we know the fans in Toronto will also jump on board to support the cause and the fundraising efforts."
Fans can bid on the game-worn, signed jerseys at www.knighthawks.com/Auction. The auction will begin on Sunday, March 31 at noon and end at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 6.
"The continued partnership between the Rochester Knighthawks and CURE Childhood Cancer Association continues to be an example of how impactful community support can be," said CURE Executive Director Holly Dutcher. "Our agency relies on the kindness of the Greater Rochester community and we are so honored the Rochester Knighthawks have chosen to partner with us, but more importantly, let local families know they are not alone in their battles. There is a community of people behind them, supporting them and hoping for them."
