Dustin Brown to bring Cup to Ithaca on Saturday
Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown, a native of Ithaca, N.Y., will bring the Stanley Cup to Ithaca High School on Saturday morning.
The Syracuse Post-Standard reports that a limited number of photo opportunities with the Cup will be available for a $5 donation to the Semper Fi Fund, which helps provide support for injured or critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Fans will also be able to receive an autographed championship photo signed by Brown for a $5 donation, and raffle tickets will be sold for the chance to win mini replica Stanley Cups signed by Brown.
"Winning the Stanley Cup is a dream come true," Brown said. "I'm extremely excited to share this experience with the people and town of Ithaca, and raise money for a cause very close to me and my family."
The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund is a nonprofit organization that provides immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the Armed Forces and their families.
