And by anything, the HarbourCats mean anything.

"A window sticker, tee-shirt, 10-game flex pack, season ticket, key chain, hoodie...any item purchased is fair game to be entered," said HarbourCats GM and Managing Partner Jim Swanson. "We just want to keep our fans involved and give one of them a great chance to be part of the big party we will have once we can return to play."
