Starting January 25th 2010, fans will be able to start bidding for a chance to dine with their favorite Islander players at Rothmans Steak House in East Norwich. Bidding will run from January 25th to February 19th, with the dinner taking place on March 7th.
This is the second Sticks and Steaks Dinner that the Islanders are throwing and all of the proceeds will go to the Islanders Childrens Foundation benefitting the Jr. Islanders Hockey Program. The highest bidder for each player, along with a guest will enjoy an exclusive dinner with the player they bid on, and have an opportunity to meet the rest of the Islanders team. Last year's dinner was a great success and brought in approximately $20,000, all going towards the Islanders Children Foundation.
This is a one of a kind event where winners will get a chance to talk to and meet all the players during a cocktail hour, then sit down and eat a multi-course meal with their favorite player. Islander players John Tavares
, Rick DiPietro
and Doug Weight will have multiple winners. Several Islander legends such as Bryan Trottier and Bobby Nystrom will also attend the event for fans to bid on.
