Fayetteville-Manlius High School hockey team remembers Patrick Cole with donation to ‘Little Gifts for Life’

The Fayetteville-Manlius High School hockey team has donated a signed Syracuse Crunch jersey and T-shirt to benefit the Little Gifts for Life Auction, the annual charity event that supports University Hospital’s Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders.

The donation was made in memory of Patrick Cole, who died of cancer in 2001. Cole would have been a senior at Fayetteville-Manlius High School this year.

The Seventh Annual Little Gifts for Life Auction will be held March 29 at the Oncenter, 800 S. State St. Since its inception the auction has raised more than $700,000 to benefit University Hospital’s Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders. Funds raised from the auction have helped purchase infusion chairs, sleeper chairs, camps sponsorships for children with sickle cell, as well as support education and research activities at the center.

The Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders provides diagnostic testing and treatment for children with various malignancies and for children with hematologic abnormalities. Presently, 700 children from the Canadian border to northern Pennsylvania are served by the center and 50 to 60 new patients are referred for evaluation and treatment each year.

For more information on the auction, call at 461-0068.
