AVON – An Avon car dealer hopes that others nationwide will carry forward the tradition of giving thousands of Rochester Redwings tickets to first responders.
Dom Genova, owner of Genesee Valley Motors, has been giving away tickets for ‘First Responder Days’ for three years now. First it was for Genesee Country Village and museum, and now First Responder Day sends local fire, police and EMS to a Redwings game for free.
So far, about 4,800 tickets have gone to local first responders.
Receiving agencies include 15 police agencies, 33 fire companies and 14 ambulance companies.
This year, First Responder Day falls on July 23.
