OSWEGO — The Oswego Sunrise Rotary Club and the Oswego Minor Hockey Association are pleased to announce they will present the film “Miracle” at the Lake Ontario Conference Center on Nov. 7, 2019.
The event will feature Gordon “Pete” Sears as keynote speaker. Sears is a longtime Oswego resident, attended SUNY Oswego and was a goaltender on the 1972 United States Men’s Olympic hockey team. He also coached the Oswego High Schol boys hockey team and Osweego Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) for many years. He will be introduced by SUNY Oswego hockey coach Ed Gosek.
The event begins with a cocktail hour at 5 p.m. followed by dinner and a short program and screening of the film.
“Miracle” is the story of the gold medal-winning United States Men’s Hockey Team that upset the heavily favored Soviet Union team in the semi-final round of the 1980 Olympics and secured the gold medal by beating Finland in the final.
The showing is the fifth in the Sunrise Rotary Club’s Dinner and a Movie series, partering with another worthy agency to raise money in support of their causes. Sunrise Rotary and the OMHA are using the proceeds of this year’s event to support their annual scholarships.
Ticket are available from Sunrise Rotarians, members of the OMHA Board of Directors and at the river’s end bookstore, Oswego Tea Company and Lake Ontario Antiques and Creative Designs. Tickets can also be purchased online on the Oswego Sunrise Rotary and OMHA Facebook pages.
