Sunday is the IceHogs 13th Annual Jersey Auction Night

Rockford, Ill.- One lucky fan attending Sunday’s Rockford IceHogs-Milwaukee Admirals game at the BMO Harris Bank Center at 5:05 p.m. will have a chance to win a 2012 45th Annual Edition Chevrolet Camaro  2SS courtesy of Lou Bachrodt Auto Mall.

Sunday is the IceHogs 13th Annual Jersey Auction game for charity and the first 1,500 fans to the BMO will receive a set of IceHogs poker cards sponsored by Lou Bachrodt Auto Mall. This year’s auction theme is “Viva Rock Vegas” and the IceHogs will be wearing special jerseys that will be auctioned off the players’ backs immediately following the game.

For tickets to the game, call (815) 968-5222, online through or at the BMO Harris Bank Center Box Office, open noon to 5 p.m.

Fans can register to be selected for a chance to win the Camaro. Sign-up for the contest will be located by the U.S. Cellular Fan Zone in the upper concourse and is limited to one entry per fan. Registration will be open until the end of the first intermission.

The randomly selected fan will roll a pair of giant dice on the ice during the second intermission on Sunday and will have an opportunity to win other great prizes, including a pair of round-trip airline tickets to Las Vegas courtesy of Allegiant Airlines, a pair of IceHogs season tickets for 2012-13, a suite for an upcoming IceHogs game, an IceHogs jersey, and tickets to an upcoming IceHogs game.

Last season, the generous IceHogs fans raised $34,156 at the Annual Jersey Auction and now have totaled $613,579 in 12 auctions since the team was founded in 1999, with all the proceeds staying in the Rockford community. In 2010-11, the IceHogs and IceHogs Charitable Foundation raised $111,250 for local non-profit causes and organizations.
