The Buffalo Sabres kicked off Sabres Community Assist Week with a special visit to the Fall Festival at the Heritage Centers Maryvale School in Maryvale, N.Y. on Friday.
The group consisting of eight Sabres players, Sabres alumni Rob Ray and Andrew Peters, coach Ron Rolston, former broadcaster Harry Neale and Chief Development Officer Cliff Benson interacted with students from the Heritage Centers Educational Center and individuals in the Heritage Centers’ adult work program for an ice cream social.
The Fall Festival left a lasting impact on the Heritage Centers families, according to Executive Director Michael Gross.
“Our people have a long road to face. To have celebrities and the Sabres organization as a whole embrace them is incredibly uplifting, ” Gross said. “We have truly found that the Sabres organization gets it. They want to be part of the fabric of the community. That is going to carry a long way.”
