Red Wings’ Hawaiian Jersey Day Helps Golisano Children’s Hospital

Players Literally “Give the Shirts off Their Backs” to Help Region’s Hospitalized Kids

July 31, 2007

The Red Wings will literally "give the shirts off their backs" at this tropical-themed, charity home game.

The Rochester Red Wings, decked out in commemorative Hawaiian-print jerseys, take on the Ottawa Lynx beginning at 1:35 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 12 at Frontier Field.

Proceeds from ticket sales – as well as those raised by a post-game auction of the players’ limited edition, autographed Hawaiian jerseys – will benefit Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong.

After the game, tropical fun continues; families are invited to stick around for “Margaritaville” style music, courtesy of Pirate Dreams, while kids run bases with team mascots, Spikes and Mittsy.

Tickets are $5 each, or four for $18, and can be purchased by calling (585) 273-5948 (hospital employees can buy their tickets directly from Karen Bisbo or Jennifer Stoltz, rooms 4-2536 and 4-7235, respectively). 

Those interested in watching the game in style can bid on the use of the Red Wing’s 20-person suite for game day; opening bid is $200 and must be raised by a minimum increment of $15. Proceeds from the winning bid benefit the children’s hospital. To place yours, e-mail Karen Eisenberg at keisenberg@admin.rochester.edu. Bidding ends at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 8.
