BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)- The Buffalo Sabres Green Team will be partnering with the Amanda Hansen Foundation ahead of the Sabres home game Saturday night.
A carbon monoxide detector drive will be held as a part of Carbon Monoxide Awareness month. All fans who bring a new carbon monoxide detector will receive a pair of tickets to the Buffalo Auto Show in February at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.
The Amanda Hansen Foundation is a not for profit organization that supplies carbon monoxide detectors to those families that cannot afford them. The foundation was started by Kim and Ken Hansen, who lost their only daughter Amanda in 2009 after she slept over a friend’s house that had high levels of carbon monoxide in the home.
Collectors will be located at all entrances to the First Niagara Center starting at 5 p.m. up until game time at 7 p.m.
If you cannot attend the game and would still like to make a donation, you may drop off carbon monoxide detectors to the office of Assemblyman Michael Kearns at 1074 Union Road, West Seneca, N.Y.
