B-SENS TEAM UP WITH MAGIC PAINTBRUSH PROJECT TODAY!

Johnson City, N.Y.– The Binghamton Senators will be joining The Magic Paintbrush Project Wednesday, October 20th 1:30pm to 3:00 for their Annual “Paint With The Players” Workshop. This special workshop will be held at The Magic Paintbrush Project’s workshop at The Oakdale Mall.
With over 130 confirmed attendees the workshop is limited by reservation only. 

Each year the B-Sens spend an afternoon with individuals with special needs at The Magic Paintbrush Project. The Project brings together special needs families, professional hockey players and a community of fans to cheer them on as they combine goals and gear with inspiration. In addition to special needs families, event participants from the "Oak Tree Program" and Greene Central Schools will also be participating.
This event supports individuals with special needs as they demonstrate how they use “teamwork” to successfully navigate the daily challenges of living with a disability. The Binghamton Senators join in the fun and become a member of the individual’s team. In addition, this event collaborates with a number of agencies and organizations, exhibiting how the community “teams up” to successfully meet challenges. The planned activities include “Pumpkin Hockey” and the 7th Man Slide.   These activities have been carefully developed to meet these identified needs, with abundant laughter and purpose.
Artwork created at this event will be on permanent display at The Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena as well as area businesses and community centers. A one of a kind team autographed painted jersey from this session will be available in November at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena at the Annual Clay Ground Plate Auction on December 17th & 18th.  The Magic Paintbrush Project will be showcasing the artwork created at this event at the arena throughout the year.
