NYLON – All law enforcement agencies in Monroe County will be handing out free tickets to the July 17 Rochester Red Wings game, courtesy of an Avon car dealer who wants to say ‘thank you’ to all first responders.
According to a press release from the Brockport Police Department, Dom Genova, Owner of Genesee Valley Ford and Genesee Valley Chrysler Dodge Jeep in Avon, has committed to purchasing thousands of tickets to the Red Wings game on Sunday, July 17, 2016 at 1:35 p.m. so that every first responder has the opportunity to go to the game. Police said that they would use those free tickets to invite the people they serve to go to the game alongside them.
“Usually the public has limited opportunities to interact with first responders and when they do, they interact under less than favorable conditions,” said Brockport Police Chief Daniel Varrenti. “This will allow us to interact with the public, absent an emergency, and frankly just kick back and have a good time. We are extremely grateful to Mr. Genova.”
In April 2016, Genova arranged a meeting with Verrenti and other law enforcement heads to unveil his intentions to purchase as many tickets as necessary so any first responder who wanted to attend the July 17, 2016 Red Wings game could do so, as his guest, and as a token of his appreciation for first responders.
