A graduate of the New York University College of Dentistry, Dr. Avi Weisfogel has served as co-owner and business instructor at Dental Sleep Masters for the last year. Outside of his professional responsibilities, Dr. Avi Weisfogel is an avid sports fan who holds season tickets for the New York Rangers NHL team.

Throughout the year, the New York Rangers partner with the Garden of Dreams Foundation to hold fundraising and awareness events that benefit children facing challenges or illness. On October 22, 2015, the team participated in the NHL’s annual Hockey Fights Cancer initiative by holding an awareness event during its game against the Arizona Coyotes.

With the support of the Garden of Dreams Foundation, the Rangers hosted several families from Hassenfield Children’s Center at the NYU Langone Medical Center. Before the game, the children participated in a number of stadium experiences, including riding the Zamboni, throwing t-shirts to the crowd, and eating a catered dinner in the stadium lounge. They then joined nearly 20,000 Rangers fans who had gathered to watch the game.

During the awareness night, the Rangers wore special lavender warm-up jerseys and hockey stick tape, which they later auctioned to raise money for the Garden of Dreams Foundation. After the event, the team offered unique merchandise to benefit the entire Hockey Fights Cancer initiative.
