GLENS FALLS — Hockey fans will gain free admission to Friday night's preseason game and all proceeds from the 50/50 will benefit the Dave Strader Scholarship Fund, the Adirondack Civic Center Coalition announced Thursday.
Dave Strader died Sunday at the age of 62 following a battle with bile duct cancer. A moment of silence is planned in Strader's memory prior to the 7 p.m. puck drop as the Adirondack Thunder take on the Reading Royals at Cool Insuring Arena.
The Dave Strader Scholarship was set up by Dave and his wife, Colleen, and is given annually to a high school student from Glens Falls High School.
Anyone interested in making a donation may send one to Janice Casey, Treasurer, Glens Falls City Schools at 15 Quade St., Glens Falls, NY 12801.
