SYRACUSE, N.Y., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bankers Healthcare Group, the leading provider of financial solutions for healthcare professionals, and the Syracuse Crunch are making families at Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital VIPs this hockey season.
Through a partnership with the Crunch, BHG is providing tickets for up to two families to attend seven hockey games through April. The special guests will also receive exclusive access to the locker room to meet the Crunch team after the game. For each designated game, Upstate will nominate a family that could use a fun-filled night out.
"We are very proud to be a part of this partnership with BHG and Golisano," said Syracuse Crunch Owner Howard Dolgon. "It is an honor to invite these children and their families to a night out with the Crunch. Our players and staff are passionate about supporting the children's hospital, and are inspired by both the children and team of healthcare professionals."
Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital Administrator Jennifer Speicher said, "The importance of taking a break from illness or disease to focus on quality family time is monumental for patients. When they are hospitalized here at Upstate, they can't always leave their rooms, let alone attend a hometown game. This partnership with BHG and the Syracuse Crunch allows our staff to identify patients and families who are in greatest need of this opportunity for an energizing night at a terrific local venue. I continue to be impressed by the creativity and generosity of our community partners."
BHG will also team up with the Crunch for a special holiday party at the children's hospital. A few Crunch players will meet with the children to celebrate the holiday season.
"We hope this helps the kids being treated at Golisano smile and gives them a chance to have a little fun with their family and friends," said BHG CEO Al Crawford. "We're inspired every day by the healthcare professionals who work hard to treat pediatric patients, and this partnership is just one way we can help pay it forward in our community."
Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital offers primary and specialized medical care for pediatric patients. It is the only pediatric intensive care unit in a 17-county referral area, and the only dedicated pediatric Emergency Department between Rochester, N.Y., and the state of Vermont.
Syracuse Crunch single game and season tickets for the 2016-17 season are on sale now and can be purchased either in person at the Crunch office located in the War Memorial Arena at 800 S.
