Buddy Skate 2006 - 2007

Rebel players and parents, you are the best !!!! The 06-07 Buddy Skate was the best so far. Over 25 students from the Genesis School came to the 06-07 Buddy Skate and were not disappointed. 65 Rebel players from teams ranging Mite to Juniors attended the skate to help the kids skate and have a great safe time. The students all had a great time. Thanks to all the players for not only taking the time to make a difference but to really caring, and it showed. From tying skates to just helping kids skate, you were great. There are so many parents to thank I would not know where to begin, on behalf of the students and their families... thank-you. There were many special moments with new friends made, we all got more than we could ever give.

The cookies, cakes, cupcakes, and so much more were endless.

Our thanks go out to the students and staff of the Genesis School for Autistic Children for giving us this opportunity to work with them, the Dix Hills Ice Rink for their sponsorship, Jerry Sullivan for allowing us to carry on this event for the fourth year and to our Rebel family for always caring. Special thanks to Mr. Puglia for supplying all the soda and juices.

A huge thanks to Jolynn Sapia & Erin Sparacio for arranging and directing the event. Also thanks to Mark Sparacio for lending his talents and creating the Rebel / Autism Ribbon.

A complete list of those that attended is below the group photo.
