We hit the road early on a Saturday morning to surprise the next winners of our #GuginoGiving "honoring others that serve others" campaign. With Buffalo Sabres tickets in hand, we surprised Dave and Tammy just as they finished teaching a class at Elevation Sports Academy in Dunkirk. The picture you see above is us filming them as we revealed the surprise. Just behind us were dozens of people who call Elevation Sports Academy home, and they erupted in applause and cheers when it happened. It was a VERY COOL MOMENT!
Here is the nomination that was sent in to our team by Rod and Sandra Sheridan. It's a powerful testimony of friendship, honor, and community. After you read it, visit our homepage to learn how you can do what Rod and Sandra did, and nominate someone who deserves to be the next winner of our #GuginoGiving campaign.
"I would like to nominate Tammy Racino and Dave Harriger for the Sabres tickets. When I think of two people who have dedicated so much of their time to helping others and expecting nothing in return, it's them. They worked for months helping plan my husband's benefit. They helped inspire members of the Elevation Sports Academy to also give back by assisting the Salvation Army, filling time slots ringing the bell. They also put on Pound benefits to support Breast Cancer, and have an upcoming 4H Pound for Puppies in February. The gym collected items for the Troops, and items to assist a local family who lost everything in a fire. Rod and I are honored to call them our good friends. On a side note Thank you again for recognizing Rod. We had an amazing time at the game. We truly live in an amazing community! ❤"
Thanks for sharing their story, Rod and Sandra!
We look forward to hearing more great stories like this from our community, as we grow the #GuginoGiving idea together!
It's at the heart of #GuginoGiving for obvious reasons.
Yes, we are having a blast giving away Sabres tickets. But it isn't the game that is the focus of the giving. One of the greatest gifts we can give one another is the gift of time spent together. And that is exactly what happens every time we send someone to a Sabres game.
When we saw this picture it reminded us of something important.
The example of our lives leaves a shadow for the next generation to follow. The example that shadow sets is up to us. When we lead the way showing them the value found in time spent together, they will truly understand the value of building healthy relationships.
That's more of the heart behind #GuginoGiving.
That is a gift that will keep on giving.

We live in an amazing community. The single biggest reason for that? The people. So we had an idea. Why not recognize people who are always putting the needs of others before themselves? We want to find those people, and honor them. As a way of doing that, we have been giving away tickets to a Buffalo Sabres game to them.

We want to send one of your friends to a Buffalo Sabres game.
Here is how it works:
#GuginoGiving is about honoring people who honor others.
If you know someone who fits the bill, we want to hear about them! Tell us why they are deserving of having someone spoil them a little. If they end up being selected, they will get 2 tickets to the Buffalo Sabres and Philadelphia Flyers game on Tuesday, January 10, 2017.
You can leave your story about them in our comments section below, or on our FACEBOOK PAGE. We look forward to hearing powerful stories about someone you know that deserves this honor!
