Jonathan Sim has joined captain Bill Guerin, Mike Comrie and Ruslan Fedotenko in contributing to ISLANDERS INSIPIRE, the new charitable initiative in which Long Islanders host children in need at home games at Nassau Coliseum. As with all the contributions through ISLANDERS INSPIRE, Sim's gift will provide for game tickets and round-trip bus transportation for the children.
"I'm proud to join Billy Guerin and all of the generous Islanders fans and sponsors who are stepping up and contributing to ISLANDERS INSPIRE," said Sim, the veteran forward signed as a free agent on July 1. "I encourage everyone to be a part of this fantastic program.”
ISLANDERS INSPIRE is an initiative developed by the Islanders following suggestions from long-time corporate sponsors and season ticketholders. The franchise and its extended family of sponsors and fans realized that so many continue to reflect on the experiences we had as children attending Islanders games or more recently as parents attending with our children. These game experiences have created a lifetime of memories for our families. ISLANDERS INSPIRE allows Islanders fans and the Long Island business community the opportunity to create those same memories for thousands of children on Long Island that might not otherwise get the chance. Because We're All Islanders.
There are several ways for Islanders fans and area businesses to get involved with ISLANDERS INSPIRE. For more information on this charitable program, please call 1.800.882.ISLES ext. 3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
"No matter the level," said Comrie, "we encourage Long Islanders to join us in making a difference in the lives of young children by participating in ISLANDERS INSPIRE."
