Comets and Boilermaker to Distribute Sports Equipment to Local Youth
(Mar. 21, 2017)
Two Utica Comets players will be at Boilermaker headquarters at 805 Court Street at 4:30pm on Tuesday, March 21st to greet local youth and hand over the equipment that was collected during the Skates n Sneaks Sports Equipment Drive in early March.
From March 3rd – 5th, the Boilermaker and Comets teamed up to conduct the drive at the Utica Memorial Auditorium. In its first year, the drive collected over 90 pairs of gently used athletic footwear of all sizes and for a wide variety of sports, from hockey skates to golf spikes. In addition, the drive collected over 40 pieces of additional sports equipment ranging from complete youth golf sets to baseball bats, hockey sticks, and lacrosse sticks.
The Boilermaker and Comets organizations are amazed by the community's generosity and thrilled with the outcome of the drive in its first year. We hope that the local media will join us as we celebrate the event's outcome.
The 40th running of the Boilermaker Road Race will take place on Sunday, July 9th, 2017.View Recent Press
