The iPlay America indoor theme park, located in Freehold Township, will serve as the host to what should be a very fun event for New York sports fans.
Legendary New York Rangers’ players Mark Messier, Mike Richter, Brian Leetch and Adam Graves will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their 1994 Stanley Cup championship with a public appearance at iPlay America on June 30. The players will answer questions, take photos and sign autographs with fans.
“We’ve been planning this for many months and it’s such a rare opportunity to get all four together in one place,” said Jessica Schwartz, vice president of Sales and Marketing for iPlay America. “Having them together is a dream come true for our company.”
Gold VIP tickets will get fans a professional photo with the players, a signed event poster and seats at the Q&A session. Platinum VIP tickets will get fans all of the above plus a one-hour reception with the players before the event.
The event will also feature a silent auction for authentic, signed jerseys of all four former Rangers players. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Mikey Strong Charity, which supports Mike Nichols of Monroe Township, who suffered a serious spinal cord injury while playing hockey.
“We don’t have a set money goal,” Schwartz said. “We’re just doing the best we can to raise funds for Mikey Nichols. We love supporting him.”
