MOLINE, Ill. (January 11, 2014) – The Quad City Mallards tonight partnered with the Genesis Health Services Foundation to raise $18,600 for the Genesis Flu-Free QC program through a game-worn jersey auction after the Mallards’ game against the Arizona Sundogs at the i wireless Center.
The special edition affiliate jerseys worn by the Mallards- who are in their first season as an affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Minnesota Wild and the American Hockey League’s Iowa Wild- in their 1-0 loss to the Sundogs tonight went up for bid in a live auction immediately following the contest, which was watched by a season high crowd of 5,834. The jersey of defenseman Mike Monfredo drew a high bid of $1,600.
Over the last 19 years, Mallards jersey auctions have raised well over $700,000 to benefit Genesis Health System charities. Tonight’s auction is the first of two the Mallards will hold this season to benefit the Genesis Health System charities. Another set of one-of-a-kind game worn jerseys will go up for bid on Saturday night, March 8 after another match-up between the Mallards and Sundogs.
The Mallards return to action next Friday against the Thunder in Wichita. The Mallards next play at home on Friday, January 31 at 7:05 p.m. against the Tulsa Oilers. January 31 is another $1 Dog/$1 Beer Night presented by 97X. $1 hot dogs and beers will be available at iWireless Center concession stands during each of the Mallards’ 11 Friday night home games this season.
