Power To The Purple Tonight With The Binghamton Senators
You may have heard about the sad story about how Binghamton Senators Head Coach Luke Richardson's daughter Daron lost her life to suicide. Luke has formed a non profit group called "Do It For Daron" or D.I.F.D.
Since then, coach Richardson and his wife Stephanie have been on a mission to educate the community about mental health issues and that's why they've teamed up with the B-Sens and the Mental Health Association of the Southern Tier to form " Power to the Purple." Purple was Daron's favorite color.
Tonight is Power to the Purple night when the Senators take on the Penguins. D.I.F.D is about inspiring parents to talk to their kids about mental health and promote mental health well-being.
Everyone is encouraged to wear purple in support of youth mental health. The first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a purple D.I.F.D. rally towel. Come early and visit local agency tables on the concourse where information is available for those in need.
Face-off is at 7:05. For more on the B-Sens and this weekend's events, go here. At the end of the game, everyone who wears purple is asked to come to the ice to form the shape of a heart. A photo will be taken. For more info on D.I.F.D. go here.
LET'S GO SENS.
