At the Friday March 30th Rock game vs. the Philadelphia Wings, the Toronto Rock will be revealing their third jersey to recognize this years Charity Game.
From every game ticket sold for this game, the Toronto Rock is pleased to announce that Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment will donate $1 to the selected charities on behalf of the Rock.
Fans attending the game that evening will have the chance to participate in the silent auction and bid on the third jerseys worn during the game that evening by the team. Funds raised from the silent auction will support Ontario Special Olympics and Les’s Fund-Lacrosse Fans Fighting Cancer.
Les’s Fund was created in recognition of the Rock’s former coach and GM Les Bartley who lost his fight with cancer in 2005 but proudly wanted any funds raised on his behalf to support the following charities: Princess Margaret Hospital for colon cancer research, Wellspring Cancer Support Centre & the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Winners with the highest bids on the third jerseys from the Charity Game will be welcomed onto the floor post-game to meet the player and take the jersey right off their back to have it autographed.
The silent auction will begin when the doors open at the ACC at 6:30 p.m. on Friday March 30th at Gate One and conclude at the ball drop of the third quarter of the Rock game. Details on the payment process and how to collect the auction items won will be provided at the game.
Come out and support these two great charities and your Toronto Rock!
