(Boise, ID) ? The Idaho Steelheads announced Tuesday morning that the weekend jersey auction featuring blue and orange, Boise State themed uniforms raised more than $17,000 for St. Luke?s Elks Children?s Rehab and St. Luke?s Mountain States Tumor Institute Pediatrics. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised over the weekend went directly to the two organizations. The team doesn?t keep any of the money. The Steelheads have now helped raise nearly $370,000 for local charities and non-profit organizations via jersey auctions dating back to the 1997-98 season. Three jerseys were purchased outright for $1,500 ? forward Jacob Cepis?s #19, defenseman Kory Scoran?s #5, and goaltender Jerry Kuhn?s #35. The team will host one more jersey auction this season, showcasing the other half of the in-state college rivalry by wearing black-and-gold jerseys themed after the University of Idaho in March. That auction, like the Boise State jerseys, will benefit St. Luke?s Elks Children?s Rehab and St. Luke?s Mountain States Tumor Institute Pediatrics. Group outings at a Steelheads game are a great way to gather friends, colleagues, or co-workers for a fun night out in downtown Boise. Ticket prices are discounted and you can get a Pepsi, Double-R Ranch Hot Dog, and bag of Tim?s Cascade Chips with each ticket. Contact the Steelheads front office at 208.383.0080 for more information.
