First Responders Jersey Auction and Raffle
Help The 100 Club of Chicago with these commemorative jerseys!
Wolves players will wear exclusive First Responders jerseys, presented by Turtle Wax, on Jan. 20 and 21.
These commemorative jerseys will be available to own through a variety of initiatives with proceeds benefiting The 100 Club of Chicago and Chicago Wolves Charities.
The 100 Club of Chicago provides for the families of first responders who have lost their lives in the line of duty. This membership-based organization offers several forms of financial assistance, access to resources and moral support. All sworn federal, state, county and local first responders stationed in Cook and Lake Counties are included.
Wolves forward Scooter Vaughan will wear a different jersey for each of the two games while defenseman Petteri Lindbohm has two game-issued jerseys. Having different jerseys will help support The 100 Club of Chicago and allow the Wolves family to impact our first responders and their families to the best of our ability.
These jerseys are available for both auction and raffle in the following ways:
GOLDEN TICKET RAFFLE -SOLD OUT!
One of forward Scooter Vaughan’s First Responders jerseys will be raffled. There are 50 raffle tickets available for $50 per ticket. This gives each raffle ticket a 1 in 50 chance of being picked. The Golden Ticket Raffle ticket sales will begin on Jan. 5 at ChicagoWolvesStore.com/charity.
Golden Ticket Raffle tickets will also be available at the games on Jan. 20 and 21, at the Chicago Wolves Charities Table behind Section 105. The raffle tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The raffle concludes at the end of the second intermission on Sunday, Jan. 21.
Three First Responders jerseys will be available via blind auction. The process is easy: simply bid the highest amount you would like to pay for the jersey and the highest bid submitted by 12 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 22, will be the winner.

ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP
Both Turtle Wax and the Chicago Wolves have strong ties to supporting the first responders community. Turtle Wax co-chairmen Denis and Sondra Healy have lent their support to the 100 Club of Chicago for more than 30 years. Mr. Denis Healy currently serves as the organization’s executive board vice president. Chicago sports icon and Chicago Wolves Senior Executive Vice President Wayne Messmer’s tie to first responders dates back to a critical moment on April 9, 1994, when he was shot in the throat during an attempted robbery on Chicago’s near west side. Bill Steiner and Henry Hugel of the Chicago Fire Department were first on the scene and Messmer credits them with saving his life.
