Blue Jackets Foundation announces auction of green, Irish-themed jerseys in honor of St. Patrick\'s Day


COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation will once again host a special auction featuring a full team set of authentic, autographed, green practice jerseys adorned with a Shamrock patch in recognition of St. Patrick’s Day. The players will wear the jerseys during pre-game warm-ups on Saturday, March 16 preceding the contest with the Phoenix Coyotes. Proceeds from the jersey auction will benefit the team’s charitable foundation.

Fans may bid on individual practice-worn jerseys at the Bud Light Terrace display located behind section 115 during the home games on Thursday, March 14 vs. Chicago and Saturday, March 16 vs. Phoenix. All jerseys will have a starting bid of $150 with bids being accepted through the end of the second intermission of the March 16 game.

The Blue Jackets Foundation was founded in March 2000 and has since donated $3.5 million to local non-profit organizations dedicated to one or more of its main pillars of giving: pediatric cancer, education, children’s health and safety and the development of youth and amateur hockey. For more information on the Foundation’s mission and areas of giving, visit www.BlueJacketsFoundation.org.

The Blue Jackets return to action tomorrow when the club hosts the Vancouver Canucks. Game time from Nationwide Arena is set for 7 p.m. ET. Live coverage on FOX Sports Ohio HD begins with the Blue Jackets Live pre-game show starting at 6:30 p.m. The game will also be broadcast live on the Wheeling Island Hotel & Casino Blue Jackets Radio Network, including flagship station 97.1 The Fan in Columbus, and online at BlueJackets.com.
