Girls’ Basketball Teams Stand to Score Big this New Year’s Eve

November 29, 2006

"New Year's Eve will feature two of the hottest and up and coming entertainment acts in the City of Rochester."

Starting now, area girls’ basketball teams have a shot at winning a New Year’s Eve they’ll never forget: 20 tickets to “The Preferred Care New Year’s Eve Basket-BALL” at the Blue Cross Arena on Sunday, Dec. 31, a double header that will feature both a  Rochester RazorSharks professional basketball game and a concert with pop star Teddy Geiger.   The winners will also have  a chance to scrimmage on the court during half-time.

The hitch? There’s a bit of holiday charity involved. To win, the team must compete against others to raise the most money for Golisano Children’s Hospital (using whatever creative means they choose: including change drives, foul-shot-competitions, etc.) Contending teams must present their total fundraising earnings in check form by Thursday, Dec. 21. The team whose players present the largest charitable sum will be awarded free tickets to the “Basket-BALL.” 

"New Year's Eve will feature two of the hottest and up and coming entertainment acts in the City of Rochester," said RazorSharks owner and general manager, Orest Hrywnak. “What a great incentive for high-school players looking to do something charitable this time of year.”

The “Basket-BALL” will begin with a home game against the Quebec City Kebekwa, beginning at 5:05 p.m.; Geiger’s concert is scheduled for 8:15 p.m.
