The 10th annual "Skate with the Greats" benefit at Rockefeller Center raised more than $400,000 for the Ronald McDonald House of New York on Jan. 26.
The Rangers teamed up with RMH for a memorable evening at Rockefeller Center. Rangers players Ryan Hollweg, Colton Orr, Jed Ortmeyer, Jason Strudwick, Fedor Tyutin, and alumni Rod Gilbert, Ron Greschner, and Pat LaFontaine were on hand at to mingle, skate, and sign autographs for hundreds of attendees.
Rangers television personality Sam Rosen served as emcee for this event, which has helped raise over $3 million to help maintain the Ronald McDonald House of New York, a facility that offers children with cancer and their families shelter and support while they are undergoing treatment. Since 1978, the house has been a home for more than 50,000 children and their families.
Seven-year-old Dylan Hartung of Australia, who is presently staying at Ronald McDonald House, was presented with his own Rangers jersey, as he was made an "Honorary Ranger" as part of the Jan. 26 event.
