Article By: Nate Haeni
Rockford, Ill.- For the 14th time in Rockford IceHogs team history, the club will hold a live post-game jersey auction out on the BMO Harris Bank Center ice, with this year’s taking place on Sunday after the Hogs duel with the Peoria Rivermen in an Illinois Lottery Cup matchup beginning at 5:05 p.m.
Each season, the IceHogs jersey auction features a special theme and this year’s Abrahammy Lincoln jersey theme was created by Lincoln Middle School students, Madie Miller and Monica Bautista, whose design was selected after a contest was held in art classes at the school.
The team will be wearing the specially designed “Abrahammy Lincoln” jerseys and immediately following the game, they will be auctioned off to fans out on the ice. All proceeds from the jersey auction go to the IceHogs Charitable Foundation to benefit local charities.
During the game, one fan will be selected to participate in a promotion for a chance to win a 2013 1LT Camaro Convertible, thanks to Lou Bachrodt Automall. The Camaro has an estimated retail value of $35,040.
All fans are invited to stick around and participate after the game as prizes will be also given away in a free raffle throughout the auction for those in attendance. Some of the prizes include gift certificates, autographed team memorabilia, and much more!
For tickets to the game: call (815) 968-5222, visit IceHogs.com, stop by the BMO Harris Bank Center Box Office or any Ticketmaster outlet.
The first 2,500 fans into the building for the game will receive a commemorative Abrahammy Lincoln coin, compliments of Lou Bachrodt. T-shirts featuring the Abrahammy Lincoln logo will also be sold in the team’s store, Oink Outfitters, throughout the game.
Before the IceHogs game, fans have a chance to watch the Rockford area Police take on the Rockford area Fire Departments. The puck will drop at 12:15 p.m. for the annual Guns and Hoses Charity game. Tickets for the IceHogs game can be used for admission to the Guns and Hoses game, with doors opening at 11:30 a.m.
