Wolves Wearing St. Patrick's Day Jerseys for Charity

The Chicago Wolves will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by wearing commemorative jerseys, presented by Jewel-Osco, to raise money for Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago and Chicago Wolves Charities.

 The Wolves will wear specially designed jerseys for their home games on Saturday, March 9, Sunday, March 10, and Sunday, March 17. The jerseys will be available via auction and raffle as part of the team’s 17th St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser.

Easter Seals, the primary beneficiary, is dedicated to helping people with disabilities and special needs -- and their families -- live better lives. The Wolves have raised more than $500,000 for Chicago-area charities, including Easter Seals, with the St. Patrick’s Day jerseys.

Forward Andrew Gordon, one of the team’s leading scorers, has taken the lead for this endeavor. The gregarious Porters Lake, Nova Scotia, native will wear a different jersey in each of the three games and they’ll be available via raffle, silent auction, and online auction.

Wolves forwards Alex Friesen and Devin DiDiomete and defenseman Peter Andersson will join GORDON in having their jerseys available through in-game raffles. Tickets are $5 apiece or five for $20. The jersey worn by defenseman Kevin Connauton will be available via blind auction. Fans can win all of the other limited-edition jerseys during the silent auction that begins on March 9 in Allstate Arena’s Southeast Lobby and closes at the end of the second intermission on March 17.

GORDON will have his final jersey available in a ChicagoWolves.com auction that begins March 18 and closes at noon on March 29.
