Storm Announce Specialty Jerseys to Raise Money for the Community
The Quad City Storm will be auctioning twelve specialty jerseys this season and giving 100% of the net proceeds to non-profits in the Quad City Area. In the inaugural season, the Storm auctioned off five specialty jerseys that resulted in a majority of the over $170,000 that was given back to local non-profits. The Storm were awarded the SPHL's Wanda Amos Community Service Award for their commitment to the community.
The SPHL has taken the plunge into the licensed jersey world and contracted four brands to be used by all ten teams: Peanuts, Nickelodeon, Mossy Oak and Marvel. Other Storm jerseys will be the popular Salute to Military jersey, a new Salute to Labor and our Country 'Made in the USA' jersey and a Chick-fil-A cow-pattern warm-up jersey. The two most unique jerseys this season are the first ever John Deere jersey and a Hockey Fights Cancer jersey that will allow fans to have a loved one's name on a ribbon of the color of cancer they fought. Ribbons are on sale now at quadcitystorm.com.
This season the Storm will be using a brand-new online auction platform for multiple jersey auctions. This allows fans to share the link with friends and family outside the Quad Cities who may be interested in purchasing the jerseys. The first online auction will be the Peanuts jersey on October 26 with the auction opening at QuadCityStorm.com when the puck drops and closing at 7pm on Tuesday, October 29. The schedule for live or online jersey auctions will be posted at the Storm's website.
The Storm also continues to give back money to our community at every game through Chuck-A-Puck proceeds. A list of all nonprofits and their games can be found at QuadCityStorm.com.
The Quad City Storm is entering season two in the Southern Professional Hockey League. Opening night is October 25th and will feature a laser light show, drumline battle and two-dollar beers and hot dogs before the puck drops. Fans can get their tickets right now at QuadCityStorm.com.
