BIEGA TO VISIT PENFIELD LIBRARY TONIGHTNews | 11/30/2011 10:19:38 AM | ROCHESTER AMERICANS
The Rochester Americans’ Reading Power Play continues tonight as Amerks defenseman Alex Biega stops by the Penfield Public Library (1985 Baird Rd.) at 6:30 p.m. The program is currently in its seventh year and is once again presented exclusively by Wendy’s.
Tonight, however, Biega will showcase his reading prowess, not his on-ice skills. He will be joined by The Moose, as they teach kids about hockey and the importance of reading. The program also rewards kids for reading and selects two grand prize winners that will win dinner, suite tickets and the opportunity to participate in the ceremonial puck drop prior to Rochester’s home game on Saturday, February 11 against the San Antonio Rampage later this season.
The “Reading Power Play” involves players stopping by local libraries, reading to kids and giving a hockey demonstration. Each appearance also features a raffle for Amerk memorabilia and an autograph session by the visiting player and The Moose.
The “Reading Power Play” runs from Tuesday, November 1 to Tuesday, January 31. A complete reading program schedule will be available at the Amerks Guest Services Booth in the upper atrium lobby on game nights and online at amerks.com. For more information on the reading program or to book player or Moose appearances, please contact the Amerks Public Relations department at (585) 454-5335.
