Guerin, Comrie Kick-Start ISLANDERS INSPIRE
Newest Islanders to join Long Island businesses in hosting children in need at Islanders games


Mike Comrie and Bill Guerin
Bill Guerin and Mike Comrie arrived for their press conference Monday with a charitable announcement they wanted to make on their own. The Islanders had a brand-new community initiative that was a perfect fit for the new Islanders' vision.

Guerin and Comie – meet ISLANDERS INSPIRE, designed for companies on Long Island to take an active role in affording positive life experiences to thousands of Long Island children.

"Mike Comrie and I talked a few times over the weekend about making an immediate impact on the Long Island community," Guerin said Monday evening. "We decided we would each contribute money towards bringing children in need to Islanders games. When we showed up for the press conference and told the Islanders what we wanted to do, that's when we learned about ISLANDERS INSPIRE. Mike and I looked at each other and we were like, ‘Perfect. That's it.'"

ISLANDERS INSPIRE is an initiative developed by the Islanders following suggestions from long-time corporate sponsors and season ticketholders. The franchise and its extended family of sponsors and fans realized that so many continue to reflect on the experiences we had as children attending Islanders games or more recently as parents attending with our children. These game experiences have created a lifetime of memories for our families. ISLANDERS INSPIRE allows the Long Island business community the opportunity to create those same memories for thousands of children on Long Island that might not otherwise get the chance. Because We're All Islanders.

Through the contributions of Guerin and Comrie, more than 50 Long Island children in need will be their guests at Islanders home games this season. Guerin and Comrie will not just each provide 25 tickets for each game but provide for transportation to and from the Nassau Coliseum. Said Bill Guerin's wife, Kara: "What you find is the transportation is every bit as important to the charities as the game tickets. Working with ISLANDERS INSPIRE, we're going to make this a day or night these children will never forget."

There are several ways for area businesses to get involved with ISLANDERS INSPIRE. For more information on this charitable program, please call 1.800.882.ISLES   ext. 3 or email groupsales@newyorkislanders.com.

"No matter the level," said Mike Comrie, "we encourage Long Islanders to join us in making a difference in the lives of young children by participating in ISLANDERS INSPIRE ."





We're All Islanders and the Islanders Inspire program is designed for companies on Long Island to take an active role in affording positive life experiences to thousands of Long Island children.


The Islanders Inspire program is an initiative developed by the Islanders following suggestions from long time corporate sponsors and season ticket holders. Together we realized that many of us continue to reflect on the experiences we had as children attending Islanders games or more recently as parents attending with our children. These game experiences have created a lifetime of memories for our families.


Now we'd like to build a program that allows the Long Island business community the opportunity to create those same memories for thousands of children on Long Island that might not otherwise get the chance. Because We're All Islanders.
