Tue, Nov 12th 2019 03:50 pm

Buffalo Sabres forward Jeff Skinner announced the return of his “53’s Difference Makers” program, which was originally launched in 2016.

The “53’s Difference Makers” program will recognize 10 teachers from Western New York for the important contributions they make to their students and the community.

“Education is something that my family and I have always considered of the utmost importance,” Skinner said. “I want to take the opportunity to show appreciation for the many ‘Difference Makers’ in our community, who often do not receive the credit that they deserve. This program allows me to recognize the teachers who go above and beyond to have a positive impact on their students’ lives.”

Each teacher selected will be Skinner’s special guest at a Sabres home game this season and will be provided with:

  • Four tickets to a Sabres home game
  • A $1,000 donation to the educator’s school
  • A post-game meet-and-greet with Skinner
  • An autographed Skinner jersey

The 10 teachers to be honored will be selected from a pool of nominations curated from local principals and educators. For more information, visit www.Sabres.com/DifferenceMakers.
