The Rochester Americans have again partnered with UR Medicine Golisano Children’s Hospital to present the Honorary Captain of the Game program for the 2019-20 season.
The program offers the unique opportunity of a lifetime for one child to take the ice with the Amerks and stand alongside the starting lineup during the playing of the national anthem prior to puck-drop. Each participant will also have the chance to watch pre-game warm-ups from either the team bench or penalty box, enjoy the game with family from the comfort of a luxury suite and will be treated to a special meet and greet with Amerks Hall of Famer Jody Gage and select players following the game. In addition, participants will be outfitted with their very own custom Amerks jersey as well as other team merchandise.
As part of the partnership, each Honorary Captain will be chosen by UR Medicine Golisano Children’s Hospital and will be contacted by a representative once selections have been made. The program will run repeatedly on predetermined dates throughout the remainder of the 2019-20 regular season.
