Throughout the month of April, the IceHogs honored Autism Awareness
Month presented by LawnCare By Walter, Inc.
To pay tribute, the IceHogs showcased special puzzle-piece logos on the ice at BMO Harris Bank Center for the remainder of the 2021 season and generated over $9,000 for The Autism Program at Easterseals through special raffles and auctions on the team’s website and on the mobile app.
IceHogs Head Coach Derek King joined members of The Autism Program at Easterseals, LawnCare by Walter, Inc., Hyundai on Perryville and Buccifero Family McDonalds for a special check presentation during Q98.5's live radio remote at LawnCare by Walter, Inc. on Tuesday, June 15.
The team’s special raffle and auction featured a grand prize of four tickets to a Chicago Cubs game, passes to the Cubs’ all-inclusive Catalina Club, and an IceHogs Autism Awareness LEGO Night jersey!
All fans who entered the raffle also received an IceHogs prize pack
featuring an IceHogs Autographed Mystery Puck signed by a member of the
2020-21 team as well as other items.
The fan-favorite IceHogs Autographed Mystery Pucks
