IceHogs announce the Annual Jersey Auction Theme

Rockford, Ill.- The Rockford IceHogs announced the team’s 10th Annual Jersey Auction theme on Tuesday at a press conference at Saturn of Rockford. “The Dark Hammy” is the theme for the game that will take place on Saturday, April 4 when the IceHogs take on the Milwaukee Admirals at 7:05 p.m. at the Rockford MetroCentre.

The IceHogs will wear special Dark Hammy jerseys for the contest against Milwaukee, and immediately following the game, the team will hold a live auction on the ice where fans can bid on the jerseys.  

A
ll proceeds from the jersey auction go to the IceHogs Charitable Foundation.  Some of the jersey auction beneficiaries include the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts of America, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Rockford, Jr. IceHogs and more.

Rockford has held the auction in each of the team’s nine previous seasons of professional hockey in the Forest City. Over the first nine auctions, the IceHogs have raised more than $509,000 with all the proceeds staying in the Rockford community. 

Last season’s auction raised an all-time IceHogs franchise record $73,195.  To go along with the live jersey auction, the night will also feature several silent auction items and a raffle for a customize-your-own jersey auction jersey.  

The first 2,000 fans to the game on April 4 will receive an IceHogs Jersey Auction T-shirt featuring The Dark Hammy logo.  One lucky fan will also have an opportunity to win a new car courtesy of Saturn of Rockford.  A fan at that night’s game will be chosen at random and will participate in an on-ice contest for the car.

The game is sponsored by Saturn of Rockford, Dental Dimensions and 13 WREX. For tickets to the game call (815) 968-5222, on-line at www.metrocentre.com, in person at the MetroCentre Box Office or at Hogs HeadQuarters inside the CherryVale Mall.
