"Cancer is a word...It is not a sentence."

I have been raising money for the American Cancer Society for the past five years through officiating.

During this time I have raised more than $475,000. During the past year I have raised over $137,000. In 2017, at a ceremony at Foxwoods, I received the Sandra C. Labaree New England Volunteer Values Award from the American Cancer Society. In 2016 I was recognized for my efforts by the National Association of Sports Officials (NASO) at their annual meeting in San Antonio with the Great Call Award. Below is a video of the NASO award ceremony.

But I don't do this for awards, I do it because everyone has a loved one, friend, or acquaintance, if not they themselves, who has been impacted by this terrible disease. We need awareness and we need donations to find a cure.

What do I do?

  • I donate 100% of my officiating fees (over 1,400 games)

  • I have a network of sponsors who donate for every game I officiate

  • At games, and with permission, I ask the fans to donate

    Sometimes I will have donated gift cards and "sell" them. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society

  • I raise awareness of cancer by encouraging every official to use a pink whistle

    I travel the Northeast to attend official's meetings in all sports raising awareness and selling pink whistles. So far I have sold hundreds of pink whistles. All proceeds from these sales are donated to the American Cancer Society.

What can YOU do?

  • If you are an official, get and use a pink whistle

    Let's spread awareness. If you have a pink whistle, USE IT! If not, contact me. Better yet, invite me to one of your Official's Board Meetings so I can introduce this important awareness opportunity. My contact information is below.

  • Donate!

    Awareness and Research cost money. Let's stop this disease in its tracks. There are many options for donating to the American Cancer Society. Find the one that best suits you and donate. If you wish to donate through me, my contact information is below.

  • Support!

    Most, if not all, of us knows someone who has been impacted by cancer. Support them. A kind word; encouragement; a hug. It goes a long way when you are feeling the sting of this dread disease.
