Brothers see names up in lights in New York

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Two young Bermudians were shocked to see their names up in lights on a recent trip to Madison Square Garden.

Brandon and Dylan Sangster, aged 9 and 7 respectively, headed to New York with their father, Jeff, to watch an ice hockey game between the New York Rangers and his team, the Philadelphia Flyers.

Unbeknown to the Saltus Grammar School students, however, their dad had paid to send them a shout-out on the jumbotron screen — welcoming Brandon and Dylan to their first ever NHL (National Hockey League) game, which the Flyers won 3-0.

“They were very excited and quickly pointed it out to me,” said Mr Sangster, the chief financial officer at insurance firm Validus.

The $100 charge for the message will go to the iconic venue's Garden of Dreams charity, which helps disadvantaged children.

“It was well worth the donation,” Mr Sangster added.
