Jersey auction to benefit Illinois Special Olympics
The Rockford IceHogs have partnered with Special Olympics, Illinois, for a Star Wars themed 17th Annual Jersey Auction game on March 20 at 4 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bank Center.
The 2016 jersey theme pays homage to Star Wars with its black base and silver detailing.
Immediately after the conclusion of Rockford’s contest with the Checkers on March 20, the team will hold a live auction on the ice surface of the BMO, as fans can bid on the game-worn jerseys.
All proceeds from the auction will benefit the IceHogs Charitable Foundation. In turn, the IceHogs Charitable Foundation will donate a portion of the jersey proceeds to Special Olympics, as well as other local charities.
