How to Own the Chicago Wolves' St. Patrick's Day Jerseys and Help Easterseals
GLENVIEW, Illinois -- No city celebrates St. Patrick's Day as eagerly as Chicago -- and no Chicago team celebrates St. Patrick's Day as consistently and as benevolently as the Chicago Wolves.
For the 23rd year in a row, the Central Division-leading Wolves will wear commemorative St. Patrick's Day jerseys presented by Jewel-Osco. The Wolves debut the spectacular green jerseys on Friday, March 15, at 7 p.m. against the Cleveland Monsters and also will don them on Saturday, March 16, at 7 p.m. against the San Antonio Rampage. While the Wolves continue their march to the playoffs in these jerseys, they'll also be auctioning and raffling them to raise money for Easterseals Metropolitan Chicago and Chicago Wolves Charities.
"The amazing people at Easterseals work tirelessly to help children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and their families," said Courtney Mahoney, Wolves senior vice president of operations. "Every year, their services are needed by more people. It's an honor to use our St. Patrick's Day jerseys as a vehicle to help such an important cause."
There are three ways to own one of these game-worn and autographed jerseys:
1) The Golden Ticket raffle, which features highly touted rookie defenseman Nic Hague's jersey, proved popular yet again and sold out quickly. Fifty tickets at $50 apiece were available on a first-come, first-served basis at ChicagoWolvesStore.com.
2) The Blind Auction features six Wolves jerseys highlighted by 2019 AHL All-Stars Daniel Carr and Erik Brannstrom. Fans also can bid on jerseys worn by defensemen Jake Bischoff and Dylan Coghlan and mascot Skates -- and there's also a Size 56 jersey that the winner gets to personalize with his or her choice of nameplate and number on the back. This auction closes at noon on Monday, March 18. To make a bid, go here: http://bit.ly/StPatsBlindAuction
3) The Silent Auction features the jerseys of every other Wolves player along with those for coaches Rocky Thompson, Chris Dennis and Bob Nardella, general manager Wendell Young, color analyst Billy Gardner and senior executive vice president Wayne Messmer.
The silent auction takes place near the Chicago Wolves Charities table behind Section 105 at Allstate Arena. Bidding begins at 6 p.m. Friday and concludes at the end of second intermission Saturday. Warning: The bidding gets particularly spirited during the final hour leading up the deadline.
The Wolves have won eight home games in a row heading into St. Patrick's Day weekend and own a 3-point lead in the Central Division over the Grand Rapids Griffins and Iowa Wild. The 2,500 fans inside Allstate Arena on Friday receive a Wolves koozie, courtesy of Sport Clips, while the first 2,500 fans on Saturday receive a Wolves toboggan hat, courtesy of Jewel-Osco.
