B-SENS HOST SUPPLY DRIVE FOR HURRICANE SANDY VICTIMS

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – The Binghamton Senators announced today that they will be holding a supply drive to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy on Saturday, Nov. 10 as they host the Norfolk Admirals. 
 
B-Sens forwards Pat Cannone, Hugh Jessiman and B-Sens equipment manager Tom Severence have arranged the drive which will benefit two of the hardest hit areas in New York; Long Beach and Staten Island. Cannone and Jessiman are Bayport, N.Y. and New York natives respectively. Severance lived Wantagh, N.Y., near Long Beach, from 1996 to 1998.  
 
“We really want to help those people that are now in need in the Long Beach and Staten Island areas and to raise awareness of what is going on throughout the affected coastal region. The storm really hit home for me as I lived close to Long Beach when I worked for the New York Islanders. I met a lot of good people there and I hate to see them struggling in the aftermath of Sandy,” said Severance.
