Make-A-Wish Central New York Named Beneficiary of Sport Management Club’s 15th Annual Charity Sports Auction
The Sport Management Club announced Make-A-Wish Central New York as the beneficiary of its 15th Annual Charity Sports Auction. The auction will take place in conjunction with a Syracuse University men’s basketball game; the date, which has yet to be determined, is slated for early December.
The SPM Club is a student-run organization in the Falk College’s Sport Management Department. Over the last 14 years, the Sport Management Club has raised over $460,000 for local charities.
“’Thank you’ does not feel adequate as we know what this amazing group of students can accomplish. The Sport Management Club’s efforts through its Charity Sports Auction, along with our generous community, will help to fulfill many of the 150 wishes currently in our pipeline—right here in Central New York. Together, we will transform lives one wish at a time—and for that, we are most grateful,” says Diane Kuppermann, Make-A-Wish Central New York president and CEO.
Make-A-Wish Central New York grants the wishes of critically ill children in their 15-county footprint. Research shows that a wish builds the physical and emotional strength a child needs to fight, and often overcome their illness.
Purchase of a game ticket for the Syracuse men’s basketball game, yet to be scheduled, is necessary for access to the auction and can be purchased on the Syracuse University Athletics’ website (cuse.com) or at the Carrier Dome Box Office. Tickets can also be ordered by phone at 1.800.DOMETIX, following the confirmation of the scheduled date.
