MASON CITY, Iowa – As the home regular-season schedule winds down for the North Iowa Bulls, the team will wrap up its 10th Anniversary season with one more jersey auction weekend for this Friday and Saturday’s games against the Granite City Lumberjacks.
The team will wear special jerseys to benefit Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to promoting solutions across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
This jersey auction will mark a first for the Bulls, as the team conducts an in-season jersey auction online through DASH Auction for the first time. The Bulls conducted their postseason jersey auction online through DASH Auction last summer. DASH is the only digital auction platform built specifically for sports teams and their fans, and is the preferred digital auctions provider for the NAHL, North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) and North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL).
The jerseys feature a subtle pattern of puzzle pieces, the universal symbol of autism which reflects the complexity of the autism spectrum. Each of the team’s 26 players is represented, as well as four jerseys with no nameplate, which may be customized by the winner of those jerseys.
Bids are being taken for the jerseys now through Saturday evening, with all sales to be finished by 9:30 p.m. This will allow the auction to wrap up just prior to the end of the final game against the Lumberjacks, and allow winners to receive their email confirmation and stop by Brutus’s Locker Room Sponsored by Christie Door Company immediately following the game to claim their jerseys.
