LOCKPORT, NY — A fundraiser for George Root III will be held as part of a hockey doubleheader on Sunday, Feb. 14 at the Cornerstone Arena. Root, a huge hockey fan, is suffering from kidney cancer.
Lockport’s mayor, Anne McCaffrey, has declared Sunday to be “George Root Day” in the city of Lockport. Proceeds from the event will be used to defray medical costs for Root.
Raffles, jersey auctions and two hockey games will highlight the day. In the first game the Junior A Lockport Express will take on the Wilkes-Barre Miners at 1 p.m. The second game at 4 p.m. will feature the Lockport Alumni hockey teams.
Tickets are available at Howell Motors Ford, Sub Delicious and Art 247.
