The Quad City Mallards teamed with Genesis Health System to raise $16,250 for Genesis Family Connects through a game-worn jersey auction after the Mallards’ game tonight against the Kansas City Mavericks at the TaxSlayer Center.
The special edition Vegas Golden Knights-style jerseys worn by the Mallards tonight in a 5-1 loss to the Mavericks went up for bid in a live auction following that contest. The jersey of Sam Warning, the Mallards’ top scorer, drew the evening’s high bid of $2,000.
Tonight’s auction is the first of two for which the Mallards will partner with Genesis this season. Over the last two decades, Mallards jersey auctions have raised well over $800,000 to benefit Genesis Health System charities.
The Mallards and Mavericks meet again tomorrow at 4:05 p.m. Fans can bring their skates and join the Mallards on the ice after tomorrow’s game. $1 sodas are available at TaxSlayer Center concession during at all Sunday home games.
