But they’re not just for show, the special jerseys are being auctioned through a sports memorabilia auction site called Dash. One hundred percent of the profits will go to the Feed My Starving Children nonprofit to feed Ukrainians impacted by the war.
“We’re all seeing the tragedy over there, we’re seeing the destruction, and I think we all need to help,” says Ice Wolves owner, Stan Hubbard. “This team – team members – got together and we thought that there’s a way we can do it.”
Bidding opened today online.
