First Look: Hockey Fights Cancer Warmup JerseyOct 10, 2023
The Bridgeport Islanders, American Hockey League affiliate of the New York Islanders, are proud to unveil their specialty jersey design for Hockey Fights Cancer on Saturday, Nov. 18th, presented by Schick and benefiting the Connecticut Cancer Foundation.
The Islanders will continue their relentless push to raise awareness and find a cure by wearing unique white and lavender jerseys during warmups before facing the Hershey Bears at 7 p.m. inside Total Mortgage Arena.
“The Connecticut Cancer Foundation is honored and grateful to be partnering with Schick and the Bridgeport Islanders to benefit Connecticut cancer patients right in our own backyards,” President and Executive Director Jane Ellis said. “Medical expertise is a key part to cancer treatment, but it won’t be enough. To get through it, you need to build a cancer team with family, friends, and community support. Thank you to Schick and the Islanders for being part of that team.”
At the conclusion of warmups, each jersey will be autographed by the player who wore it and auctioned off, with 100% of proceeds benefiting the Connecticut Cancer Foundation. In addition, one (1) lucky fan at the Nov. 18th game will take home Storm’s custom mascot sweater.
Fans interested in placing a bid may do so online beginning Monday, Nov. 13th, the week leading up to Hockey Fights Cancer Night. The auction will close at the end of the first period on Nov. 18th and winners may pick up their specialty jerseys outside section 100 just inside the main entrance to Total Mortgage Arena. Those unable to attend Hockey Fights Cancer Night may coordinate a pickup time with an Islanders’ staff member.
More information on how to participate in the online auction will be available soon.
