After over 38 years in business, we at The Computing Center stongly believe that supporting human services agencies help create our very special quality of life for our community. And we like nothing better than supporting some of the creative events that Ithaca has become known for. One of our favorite quotes regarding service to our community attributed to Muhammad Ali and others that sums our our feelings:
"Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth."
So, The Computing Center has agreed to be a Supporting Sponsor of the "Racker Rivals Big Red" event to be held at Lynah Rink on July 11th. Celebrity hockey players including Dustin Brown captain of the LA Kings, former Cornell and NHL hockey great Joe Nieuwendyk, and Edmondon Oilers goal tender, Ben Scrivens will all be participating. All the sponsorship and other fundraising will go to support the great work of the Fransisca Racker Centers.
This is the 2nd year of Racker Rivals the Big Red and for our sponsorship. We are directly supporting Dustin Brown and his wife Nicole. They both grew up in Ithaca and both played youth hockey with IYHA and TGHA. Some of the other local celebrity players will include:
- Coach Michael Schafer, Cornell Men's hockey coach.
- Topher Scott, Cornell Men's assistant coach.
- Ben Syer, Cornell Men's associate head coach
- Greg Hartz, President of Tompkins Trust Company
Please join us in supporting the player of your choice for a great cause. Here's the link right to the Racker Center pledge page: www.rackercenters.org/index.cfm/page/racker_rivals_red_players.htm
