Edmonton Oilers

Today, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation announced a special St. Patrick’s Day Puck Surprise Online Auction. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Make A Wish Foundation of Northern Alberta, Rainbow Society of Alberta and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation. The online auction consists of 65 unique items including game worn jerseys, equipment, sticks and other autographed items. Along with the online auction, fans at tonight’s Oilers game can purchase autographed pucks for $20 with hopes that one puck signed by each player will be signed in gold ink. If the luck of the Irish is on the side of that fan and the puck is signed in gold, he or she will walk away with a hockey stick autographed by the entire team.

These auctions (both online and during games) are a great way for teams to raise money for their Foundations and Foundation partners with little effort. Fans are always eager for autographs, so these simple fundraisers that cost very little to do are an excellent way to bring awareness to a cause and to give fans of all ages and incomes the opportunity to get involved. More and more teams are having similar auctions, and it’s a trend that helps a lot of people who rely directly on the foundations involved.
