Men’s Hockey Opens Jersey Auction

(Hamilton, NY – Feb. 2013) The Colgate men’s hockey team will be auctioning off their game-worn home jerseys from this season, and fans can bid on them with all the proceeds going to three organizations. The bidding for each jersey will begin immediately with the starting bids at $200 and fans can bid in $10 increments. All the money raised through the auction will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Community Memorial Hospital and Silver Puck, on behalf of sophomore Spiro Goulakos.

Goulakos was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and the team and coaches allowed him to pick the charities and organizations that will benefit from the jersey auction.

“The team wanted to do something on behalf of Spiro,” head coach Don Vaughan said. “We wanted to help raise awareness to his disease, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and at the same time show support for both the Community Memorial Hospital and the Silver Puck Club. These two organizations have helped him tremendously following his recent diagnosis.”

The bidding will start immediately and will go through until the end of the first round of the NCAA Tournament, which is March 31. The jerseys will then be shipped following March 31 or at the conclusion of the men’s hockey season.

Fans can view and bid on the jerseys and other auction items by logging onto www.auction.gocolgateraiders.com.
