The Utica Comets will honor the men and women who have served, and continue to serve, our country with Military Night on Saturday, March 28. It is a night dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the Veteran’s Outreach Center.
The Comets will wear special blue camouflage sweaters that will be sold during a live auction immediately following Saturday night’s game.
The Comets are also offering military service members, including veterans, a special $12 ticket for any available seat to Saturday’s game, against the Rochester Americans, when they show a valid military ID at the box office.
The National Guard will have a weapons display and games on the concourse for fans to compete and learn more about these branches of the military.
The UCD/ CNYVOC was formed to provide and conduct charitable, educational, social service, and housing services for veterans in need. CNYVOC is in the process of creating a resourceful, one stop facility in Utica for veterans residing throughout Central New York. When complete this facility would offer, among other services, transitional housing for homeless veterans with permanent housing for disabled and elderly veterans, plus a wide variety of other services.
