ROCKFORD, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs announced they have raised more than $70,000 from their annual Jersey Auction Game and Wizard Night (presented by Insurance King) on March 31. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Greg Lindmark Foundation.

The IceHogs have now raised more than $70,000 in five different seasons during their jersey auction and totaled nearly $1.1 million through 20 years of their annual fundraiser. The 2018-19 jersey auction also featured an average of more than $2,000 raised for each jersey.

The Hogs will now donate a portion of the funds from their 20th Annual Jersey Auction to The Greg Lindmark Foundation. The foundation was established in honor of retired Rockford Deputy Chief Greg Lindmark, who took his own life after suffering issues related to posttraumatic stress from his line of duty as a first responder. The Greg Lindmark Foundation serves to reduce the impact of cumulative stress and trauma on first responders by providing awareness, education and confidential counseling.
