The New York Rangers invite you to join the Wives of the Players, Coaches, and Training Staff for their annual Holiday Sale to be held at Madison Square Garden during three upcoming home matches from Sunday, December 3rd to Friday, December 8th. The club will host the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday, the Washington Capitals on Wednesday and the Buffalo Sabres on Friday. In addition, a silent auction will be held each night for the Ultimate Hockey Stocking, which will feature autographed Rangers items. Amongst the items to be sold during the Holiday Sale are Rangers Christmas Stockings and Rangers Hanukkah Gelts. All proceeds from the sale will benefit NYR SKATE, a division of Madison Square Garden's Cheering for Children Foundation.
NYR S.K.A.T.E. (Seeing Kids Achieve, Triumph and Excel) was established in January 1998, as a division of the Madison Square Garden Cheering for Children Foundation, designed to enrich the lives of children in the tri-state area. Through monies raised this season from fundraising programs including in-game silent auctions and raffles, GardenVision sweet spot messages, outer mall activities and special events including the Rangers Golf Classic and SuperSkate '99 and 2000, the Rangers will provide financial assistance to a variety of children’s charities.
