COVID-19 brings change to 11 Day Power Play

The list of events canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic is long and continuing to grow. Those involved in the 11 Day Power Play refused to allow that to happen to their event though changes have been made. The games won't be played on the ice at Harbor Center. In fact, there will be no ice for the 1300 participants who will begin playing hockey tonight at Buffalo RiverWorks.  Co-founder Amy Lesakowski says despite the alterations, donations are likely to surpass $1 million again this year. 

Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 10 a.m.
