"The money raised at this annual auction is used to provide essential health care services to our neighbors throughout the QCA. On behalf of that grateful community, I thank the Mallards for their on-going commitment to the health and well-being of their fans and friends,” said Ken Croken, vice president of corporate communications and marketing, Genesis Health System.
Last season, the Mallards teamed with Genesis for a pair of jersey auctions that raised better than $46,000 for both the Genesis Flu-Free QC campaign and for Genesis Outpatient Rehabilitation. Over the past 19 years, Mallards jersey auctions have raised over $700,000 to benefit Genesis Health System Charities.
“The generosity and community-mindedness of Mallards fans is something that has impressed me hugely since I arrived here a year ago,” said Mallards president Bob McNamara. “Their willingness to do so much for a cause like the Genesis Health Services Foundation that does such valuable work and provides so many important services for this community is something we are deeply thankful for.”
Saturday’s event is the first of the Mallards’ two Genesis jersey auctions this season. Another one-of-a-kind set of game worn jerseys be auctioned off following the Mallards’ Saturday, March 8 game against Arizona.
This Saturday evening will also see the first 1,000 fans ages 12 and under through the doors at the iWireless Center receive free Mallards youth replica jerseys courtesy of Scott County Family Y and Two Rivers YMCA.
