The Quad City Mallards teamed with the Genesis Health Services Foundation to raise $24,125 for the Genesis Family Connects program through a game-worn jersey auction after the Mallards’ game tonight against the Wichita Thunder at the iWireless Center.
The special edition Star Wars jerseys worn by the Mallards tonight in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Thunder went up for bid in a live auction immediately following that contest. The jersey of Mallards defenseman Mike Monfredo went for the evening’s high bid of $1,300.
Over the last two decades, Mallards jersey auctions have raised over $800,000 to benefit Genesis Health System charities. Tonight’s auction is the second of two the Mallards have teamed with Genesis to hold this season. The two auctions combined to raise $40,925.
Tonight’s auction was conducted by Stenzel Auction Service, a family owned business that has been providing auction and appraisal services for over 50 years. More information on Stenzel Auction Service and be found at www.stenzelauction.com.
The Mallards return to action on the road next Wednesday night against the Evansville IceMen. The Mallards next play at home Sunday, March 20 at 4:05 p.m. against the Indy Fuel. The first 1,000 fans ages 12 and under through the doors for the March 20 game will receive free Mallards youth replica jerseys courtesy of WQAD News 8.
