Game-worn jerseys available in silent auction during Friday’s game
The Rochester Americans announced today that the online portion of the team’s 2014 Men’s Health jersey auction will begin at 10 p.m. tonight (Friday, Jan. 31) and close at 9 p.m. on Sunday, Feb 9. Only select jerseys will be available in the online auction, which can be accessed through www.amerks.com beginning at 10 p.m.
The Amerks and Urology Associates of Rochester are once again partnering to raise both funds and awareness for prostate cancer. As part of the initiative, the Amerks will wear special-edition jerseys to promote men’s health awareness during tonight’s game versus the Rockford IceHogs. The game-worn jerseys will only be available through a silent auction to be held during the game on The Blue Cross Arena concourse through the end of the second intermission, while other select game-issued jerseys will be available in the online portion of the auction.
Following the game, the winners of the in-game auction will be able to take the ice and be presented with a “jersey off the back” from the Amerks players. Proceeds from the jersey auctions will go to www.ZeroCancer.org and The Lipson Cancer Center.
