20th Annual "Skate With The Greats" Event Featuring Rangers Legends Raises More Than $1 Million For Ronald McDonaldA® House New York

NEW YORK, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- There's very little that can rival the magic that happens when the NHL's legendary New York Rangers hit the ice; especially when it's in celebration of the annual Skate with the Greats charity event to benefit Ronald McDonald ® House New York. In its 20 th year, Skate with the Greats once again took place on Friday, January 17 th at New York City's famed Rink at Rockefeller Center, raising more than $1 million. The funds raised will help support the facility, which provides a home-away-from home for families staying in New York City while their children undergo active treatment for cancer.

Originally established with the support of alumni greats and longtime volunteers Rod Gilbert and Brian Leetch, the event included Ron Duguay, Pete Stemkowski, Adam Graves, and Mike Richter also joined the families and supporters of Ronald McDonald House New York for the event.  The Rangers participation is made possible through a partnership with the Garden of Dreams Foundation, a non-profit charity that works closely with the Rangers and all areas of Madison Square Garden to make dreams come true for children facing obstacles.

This year's lead sponsor was RBC Capital Markets, with additional sponsorship from Garden of Dreams Foundation, Brookfield Office Properties, Bloomberg, Zurich, PwC, Coatue Capital, Mutual of America, Sanford C. Bernstein & Co, LLC and Steven Bensinger.

"Giving back to the community is ingrained in RBC Capital Markets' corporate culture," said Deborah Freer, U.S. COO of RBC Capital Markets. "RBC's partnership with Ronald McDonald House has spanned seven years and our investment in the House goes beyond Skate with the Greats, taking on a much more personal element."

Attendees enjoyed ice skating with the Rangers on the iconic Rockefeller Center rink; a live and a silent auction with much sought-after sports memorabilia, concluding with an autograph session with some of their favorite Rangers players.
