Buddy Skate 2004 - 2005

On December 31st the Long Island Rebels hosted the Genesis School for Autistic Children for a holiday party that included ice skating & refreshments. Rebel players, parents, and staff volunteered to help the students Autism Ribbonhave a safe time on and off the ice.

This year the students families were invited to also participate in the skating session. "It was easy taking pictures because their smiles light up the place" said a parent. The smiles were big on and off the ice as many parents got to watch while the students were assisted ice skating by Rebel players.

The Rebels would like to thank the Genesis School for allowing us the opportunity to spend time with them. We had as much fun as the kids.
