The Skinny on an Amazing M-ISLES-TONE

During this final Coliseum season, we've celebrated many Islander m-Isles-tones -- tonight I celebrate one that's a little different, but certainly no less important.

Earlier today (4/2/2015), I received word that our It Happened at the Coliseum fundraiser has now surpassed 2,000 shirts, raising nearly $29,000 for Make-A-Wish (R) Metro NY.

There are many people to thank, particularly 

  • Joe Buono and the folks at Islesblog, 
  • the Islander PR Staff of the Islanders, 
  • my MSG Network colleagues 
and all of those who have helped publicize our sale, by writing stories and featuring me on broadcasts/podcasts, including (but not limited to) 
  • Neil Best of Newsday, 
  • Jamie Stuart & Kevin Mahar (with an assist to Rich Barrabi) of News12 Long Island, 
  • Pete McCarthy of WOR radio,  
  • Brian Compton of Isles Point Blank, 
  • Scott Charles & Christian Arnold of The Shutdown Pair
Plus literally hundreds of others who have tweeted about the sale and shared information through social media.

Of course, none of this works without the support of you...and you...and you... who have supported our cause.

From the bottom of my heart - thank you.

We're not done yet -- you can still get your shirt (or a 2nd, 3rd or 4th) here: bit.ly/IHATC  (Mother's Day & Father's Day are coming-- they'd also look great with an Easter Bonnet or a piece of Matzah!)

The next time you're fortunate enough to be on vacation, or at a major sporting event, and see a Make-A-Wish Kid, wonder with pride whether your donation has made that kid's dream come true.

Thanks -- 2,000 times!
