Chicago Wolves players wore exclusive Healthcare Heroes jerseys, presented by Turtle Wax, in January. Thank you to everyone who participated in the auction and raffle!
These commemorative jerseys were available to own through a variety of initiatives with proceeds benefiting healthcare-related charities and Chicago Wolves Charities, driven by Kia.
The Wolves are working with three local healthcare-related charities: The Illinois Association of School Nurses, the Chicago chapter of the National Black Nurses Association and NAMI Illinois.
The IASN (iasn.org) promotes wellness and educational success of school communities by supporting, developing and advocating for professional school nurse leaders. CCNBNA (chicagochapternbna.org) is committed to improving the quality of life of persons who share the African American heritage and other ethnic groups. NAMI Illinois (namiillinois.org) serve residents throughout the state with free mental health support, online groups, resources, and education.
Wolves forwards Andrew Poturalski, Jack Drury and Ryan Suzuki and defensemen Max Lajoie and Josh Jacobs, as well as mascot Skates, wore a different jersey for each of the two games. Wearing multiple jerseys enabled the Wolves and their fans to maximize their support of these important charities and their invaluable work.
These jerseys were available via auction and raffle in the following ways:
Jerseys for forwards Jack Drury and Ryan Suzuki, defensemen Max Lajoie and Josh Jacobs, mascot Skates and a team-autographed jersey were available in this blind auction, which took place at Allstate Arena.
