The Bergen Record's Devils beat writer Tom Gulitti has done a tremendous job promoting this event, so checking out his blog is a MUST, but wanted to post something on here as well.
A special fundraiser will take place Tuesday, September 6 at Local West in Manhattan for MSG Network's Jake Wisniewski, who underwent a double lung transplant to help with his Cystic Fibrosis back in June.
Tickets for the event (which takes place from 7 to 10 p.m) are $50 and include open bar and appetizers; money raised will go toward COTA (Children's Organ Transplant Association) to help cover the costs of Jake's transplant.
Among the confirmed guest from the New York hockey scene past and present:
--Devils (LW) Zach Parise, (G) Johan Hedberg and (D)Andy Greene; 3-time Stanley Cup winner Ken Daneyko
--Islanders forwards Matt Moulson and Michael Grabner, 4-time Stanley Cup champion Butch Goring
--Rangers forwards Brian Boyle and Brandon Prust; Hall of Fame defenseman Brian Leetch
