Newark, N.J. – The New Jersey Devils and Pfister Energy have forged a new sponsorship agreement for the 2011-2012 season. The driving force behind this new partnership is a one of a kind community program focusing on children’s energy education to begin in Newark recreational centers starting in late November.
“As a New Jersey based company and leading provider of solar energy to the Northeast, we are very excited about our partnership with the Devils and the surrounding Newark community,” said Wayne Pfisterer, CEO of Pfister Energy and life-long NJ Devils hockey fan.
In addition to all in arena and in game promotion, Pfister Energy based in Hawthorne, NJ, and the New Jersey Devils have created the “Energize the Community” program. This initiative, in conjunction with the city of Newark, will involve the education of the children in the city on energy efficiency and renewable energy through educational and creative arts programming. The work of the children will be displayed on the Prudential Center concourse from January through March in the Pfister Energy Renewable Gallery. The program culminates during the March 17 game when Pfister Energy presents the Devils St. Patrick’s Day Green Out!
“We are pleased to be partnering with a local company like Pfister Energy,” said Jeff Vanderbeek, Chairman and Managing Partner, New Jersey Devils. “Pfister Energy’s commitment to clean, renewable energy will not only aid the Prudential Center, but in turn the city of Newark and the state of New Jersey.”
The New Jersey Devils are a member of the 30-team National Hockey League. Established in 1982, the Devils are currently celebrating their 30th Anniversary season in the Garden State. During that time, the club has won the league’s championship on three occasions, lifting the Stanley Cup, the most famous trophy in team sports in 1995, 2000, and 2003. In 2007-08, “Jersey’s Team” moved into its new home, Newark’s Prudential Center.
