WALTERS GIVES BACK FOR THE HOLIDAYS
12/18/2013 - 11:21am

(December 18, 2013)… Dozens of students in the Rochester City School District will receive a warm coat thanks to the generosity of Rochester Knighthawk Joe Walters. The Rochester native wanted to give back to the community so he initiated a coat drive with his team and they collected coats over a two-day period. In exchange, he offered a free lacrosse clinic.

Pictured are Walters (right) and the team's Director of Communications Craig Rybczynski (left) dropping off the coats on Monday.

The clinic took place on Friday, December 6th at Total Sports Experience in Gates and was open to boys and girls of all ages and skill levels. The Coat Drive continued on Saturday, December 7th as the Knighthawks hosted the Minnesota Swarm at The Blue Cross Arena.

Fans who donated a coat received a coupon for a discounted ticket to the Knighthawks’ home opener on Saturday, December 28th. The back-to-back champs open their historic 20th season that night with a 7:30 p.m. contest against Minnesota. Tickets are currently available by calling the Rochester Knighthawks’ office at (585) 454-4295.
