The Manitoba Moose will wear special Autism Awareness jerseys during their game on Saturday, March 26 at 7 p.m. against the Charlotte Checkers.
Each game worn/issued jersey will be auctioned off with the net proceeds going towards St. Amant’s Autism Program, used to support a community based classroom for preschool aged children with autism.
Six of the jerseys can be bid on through a silent auction held during the game on the concourse near Section 125 with the auction closing at the conclusion of the second intermission.
The six jerseys being auctioned off during the game will be Eric Comrie, Josh Morrissey, JC Lipon, Ryan Olsen, John Albert and Julian Melchiori. The only way to bid on these jerseys is to be in attendance at the game.
The remaining game worn/issued jerseys will be available via an online auction hosted on True North’s eBay page: truenorth_eshop starting on Sunday, March 27 at 6:00 pm and running until Sunday, April 3 at 6:00 pm.
Fans can also help support autism awareness by purchasing a player puzzle, sold on the concourse, during each Manitoba Moose home game in March. The puzzles feature Chase De Leo, Nic Petan, John Albert, Eric Comrie, JC Lipon and Josh Morrissey. Each limited edition puzzle is autographed by the player and will be available for $20. Fans who purchase a puzzle will be entered to win a Manitoba Moose Autism Awareness Jersey.
As well, customers at any of Red River Co-op’s 35 gas bar or four grocery store locations in Winnipeg can make a donation to the cause. Anyone who makes a cash donation will receive a ballot to enter a draw to win a 12-person suite to watch a Moose home game and a Manitoba Moose Autism Awareness Jersey.
Net proceeds from player puzzles along with donations made at Red River Co-op locations will also be donated to St. Amant’s Autism Program.
Great seats are still available for the March 26th Moose game. Visit moosehockey.com/tickets or any Ticketmaster location.
