SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Hockey and horse racing is an unlikely combination that came together at the Spa on Monday when the Stanley Cup made an appearance.
Chicago Blackhawks assistant coach Kevin Dineen, like every member of the 2015 Stanley Cup Championship team, had a day to do whatever he wanted with the trophy.
The Warren County resident chose to share it with the community and give back.
He spent two hours taking pictures at $10 each to raise money for the Double H Ranch in Lake Luzerne. Double H is a year-round camp dedicated to enriching the lives of children dealing with life-threatening illnesses.
“My wife used to work at the hole in the woods camp,” he said. “She’s a nurse. And we know what incredible work they do there, so you put all those factors together and that adds up to coming here, and hopefully doing something good for others.”
Dineen also shared the cup with Justin Zayat, the son of Ahmed Zayat who owns American Pharaoh.
