Legislator Pat Burke Presents Isobel Champs Buffalo Beauts With Resolution Honoring Their Win

Legislator Burke Presents Isobel Cup Champions, the Buffalo Beauts, with a Resolution Honoring Their Achievement Erie County, New York- Legislator Patrick Burke congratulated the Buffalo Beauts on their Isobel Cup win before a session of the Erie County Legislature today. The Buffalo Beauts defeated #1 seed Boston Pride on March 19th winning the second Isobel Cup and becoming champions of the National Women’s Hockey League. In honor of their win, Legislator Burke tweeted a draft of the resolution at the Buffalo Beauts and it was retweeted nearly 40 times. Burke wrote: “when I tell my daughter she can be anything she wants I hold you all up as an example! Thank you and congratulations!” After some fans on Twitter had mentioned holding a parade for the Beauts, Legislator Burke’s office is working out the details. In the midst of their win, the National Women’s Hockey Team finally reached a deal with USA Hockey ensuring fair compensation for the women’s team who had been paid far less than the men’s team in past years.
