St. Patrick’s Day Jersey Auction and Raffle
Thank you for supporting this great cause!
Wolves players wore exclusive St. Patrick’s Day jerseys, presented by Jewel-Osco, on March 13, 18 & 20. The jerseys were available via auction and raffle with proceeds benefiting Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago and Chicago Wolves Charities.
Goaltender Pheonix Copley stepped forward on behalf of these institutions and volunteered to wear a different jersey for each of the three games. This enabled the Chicago Wolves to raise more dollars for charity.
Easter Seals, the primary beneficiary of the Wolves’ 20th St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser, operates the Therapeutic School and Center for Autism Research in Chicago that serves the growing autism community. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 68 eight-year-olds have been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a 30 percent higher rate than just three years before. In addition, a government survey released in November suggests that 1 in 45 children between the ages of 3 and 17 have been diagnosed with ASD.
