Buffalo Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark starts fundraising campaign for SPCA Serving Erie County

Buffalo Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark has partnered with online fundraising platform The Giving Project to start a fundraising campaign for the SPCA Serving Erie County. Sabres fans and animal lovers alike can enter the sweepstakes at givingproject.com for their chance to win the ultimate Sabres fan experience in February.

“I feel such great love and compassion for animals,” Ullmark said. “To get this opportunity to help the SPCA Serving Erie County feels like a great way for me to give back.”

Joe Castle, founder of The Giving Project, said the public can enter this campaign by choosing a giving level, which gives donors entries into the campaign.

“The more you donate, the more chances you have to win,” he said. “Linus is a great guy, trying to help animals in our community by fundraising for a worthy organization such as the SPCA Serving Erie County. You can’t get more Buffalo than that.”

One winner will be chosen Feb. 15. The sweepstakes includes the following:

  • Four tickets to Sabres vs. Jets game on Feb. 23
  • Linus Ullmark Buffalo Sabres navy home jersey
  • Four passes to the Sabres “Gold Carpet,” the area outside of the Sabres locker room where fans can watch the team come out for the next period
  • Postgame meet-and-greet with Ullmark
  • Two hotel rooms for either Saturday, Feb. 23, or Sunday, Feb. 24

“In working with Linus last year, we learned that his love and compassion for animals are incredibly strong,” said Gina Lattuca, SPCA Serving Erie County chief communications officer. “Equally strong is his desire to help those who are temporarily living a shelter life. Thanks to Linus’ efforts, we’ve been able to find more animals homes more quickly, and better their stays while they’re with us. That kind of assistance, and from such a beloved public figure as Linus, is invaluable to us and the animals.”

All proceeds from the campaign will benefit the SPCA Serving Erie County. Visit the campaign page at http://givingproject.com/win-linus-ullmarks-ultimate-sabres-fan-package.
