Amerks honoring 'Hometown Heroes'
The Rochester Amerks are honoring first responders and military personnel tomorrow night.
Police officers, firefighters, EMTs and military members and veterans can receive one free ticket to tomorrow night's game between the Amerks and the Toronto Marlies, which starts at 7:05.
Those Hometown Heroes will also be able to submit a photo that will be used for a tribute and the video board during the game. The Amerks will donate $2 from every ticket sold to the Monroe County Sherrif's Office Assocation of Retirees.
Prior the the Amerks game, members of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office will face off against members of the Rochester Police Department in a exhibition hockey game that will start at 4 p.m. at the Blue Cross Arena.
Capt. James McGowan of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, Lt. Ralph Montinarelli from the Rochester Police Department and Amerks team reporter Erica Whyte joined us on Good Day Rochester this morning to explain more about Hometown Heroes Night.
