Hurricane Sandy hit one of Dye’s flagship players close to home, and the time has come to do something about it.
Who: Pete “Mr. U” Utschig vs. Nicky Cuba
What: Charity Paintball event to raise money for victims of Hurricane Sandy
When: December 15th
Where: Cousins Paintball – Long Island, NY - Cousins Paintball
“Everyone who knows me, knows I’m a man of action” explains Pete “Mr. U” Utschig, a NYC firefighter and Tactical Ironmen from Long Island, NY. ”So let’s stop saying we ‘want to help’ and let’s do it, and play some paintball have some fun and win some great prizes at the same time.”
To help raise money for his friends, family, and everyone else that was affected by the devastating storm Hurricane Sandy, Mr. U and Nicky Cuba have organized a charity event at Cousins Paintball in Long Island, as well as 20 other fields up and down the east coast.
On Saturday December 15th, Cousins Paintball will be hosting Operation Sandy: The Charity Game. Dye Paintball has donated a complete set-up to be raffled off during the event, including a Reflex Marker, several sets of Rotors and i4 Goggles, as well as t-shirts and other promotional gear with all proceeds going towards the cause.
“I am asking that all paintball players around the country invite some friends come out and play some paintball on December 15 &16 to show the world what makes this Nation great. That when we get knocked down, we pick each other up, dust each other off, and come back stronger than ever!”
In addition to Mr. U’s game at Cousins, December 15th and 16th have been designated as “Sandy Relief Weekend” with over 20 fields all participating and donating their time and resources to raise money for those hurt by the recent tragedy on the East Coast.
