FALCONS BACK OUT IN THE COMMUNITY
February 21, 2012 - The Springfield Falcons hosted a pair of special events on Tuesday night as the team took part in a special fundraiser at the Red Robin Restaurant in Holyoke, MA benefiting the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society. The Falcons also took part in a practice session at Cyr Arena in Forest Park for the Springfield Capitals Youth Hockey Organization.
Cody Bass, Paul Dainton, Dane Byers, Adam Mair, Matt Calvert, Nick Drazenovic, Alexandre Giroux, Greg Amadio, Andrew Joudrey, Manny Legace, Brad Larsen, Nolan Pratt and Rob Riley all attended the event at Red Robin. A portion of the proceeds from the sales at the restaurant on this evening went to benefit the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society. There was also a raffle as individuals entered Red Robin with proceeds also going towards Dakin. The Falcons donated autographed sticks, pucks and photos as part of the raffle, while also having players sign autographs for fans in attendance.
Across town, Patrick Cullity and Ryan Garlock were skating with youngsters at a Springfield Caps Youth Hockey practice. Garlock and Cullity went through some basic drills with the kids while also spending some time in the locker room after the skate signing autographs for these special youngsters.
