Mar 06, 2020

Rafi’s Platter By Amber has signed a three-year deal to be a sponsor of St. Bonaventure University’s men’s rugby team.

Promotion for the Olean restaurant will include recognition on the team’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, and on the team’s page.

The restaurant will also have a banner hung at the Marra Athletics Fields Complex and its logo will be on the team’s warmup shirts.

Rafi’s Platter By Amber will also be recognized on air during any Bonnies home game that’s streamed online. The restaurant will be the official post-game gathering spot after Bonnies home rugby games.

“I can’t thank Amber enough for her generosity to help our growing rugby program,” said Rob DeFazio, director of the Center for Activities, Recreation and Leadership at SBU. “We wouldn’t be able to succeed on the field without support like this.”
