The Power Dodge Estevan Bruins annual Jersey Auction has concluded for another year with yet another massively successful fundraising amount raised for the team’s Education Fund.
The Jersey Auction ran for one week from February 23rd – March 2nd online at the Bruins website. Fans were also able to make bids in person during home games on February 23rd against Battlefords and March 2nd against Weyburn.
Carson Safety Services Ltd. sponsored the Bruins set of 3rd jerseys this season, with six of the jerseys being live-auctioned during the intermissions of the March 2nd game. The remaining jerseys were online/silent auction only. Additionally, the four Bruins’ captain’s home black jerseys were framed and online/silent auctioned off.
A grand total of $21,463 was raised with the auction.
The six live-auctioned jerseys went for a combined total of $7,950 with Turner Ripplinger’s #17 leading the way at $3,200.
The online auctioned jerseys and framed jerseys went for a combined total of $13,513. The top framed jersey was Johnny Witzke’s #3 going for $2,000. The top 3rd jersey honours goes to Austin King-Cunningham’s #2, which totalled $800.
All of the proceeds support the Bruins Education Fund, which provides money to former Bruins players who have moved onto post-secondary education following their junior hockey careers.
