Owner of Genesee Valley Motors

What's it all about?

At Genesee Valley we have great respect for our first responders and what they do for the community. We can think of no better way of saying “thanks” than to provide free tickets for first responders and their families to spend a day together at a Red Wings baseball game.

Rest assured this is not a “sales pitch” or way to show you our cars. If there are car salespeople there, they will be in the stands enjoying the game, same as you.

Tickets will be distributed mid-June to the various participating departments. First responders need to arrange pick up with their individual headquarters. Please check the list below to see if your department is participating.

In addition, many police departments will have a select number of tickets to hand out to the public. Individuals who are members of the public are encouraged to contact the participating police agencies below.

Thanks for your interest and let’s hope for good weather!

“Because of the generosity of both the Rochester Red Wings and Dom Genova of Genesee Valley Motors we are able to give back to the community we serve and enjoy a baseball game without the stresses of the job getting in the way or a critical incident occurring for those we serve.”

- Brockport Police Chief Daniel Varrenti, Monroe County Association of Chiefs of Police

“The Red Wings are proud to act as the host location for this great event. Dom Genova and Genesee Valley Motors’ outreach to first responders is a wonderfully kind gesture that benefits these selfless members of our community. Mr. Genova’s big heart and desire to give back is a true act of generosity. This is an uplifting and fun event, and we thank Dom Genova for giving us all the opportunity to say a heartfelt “thank you” to our first responders on July 23rd."
