Anchorage, Alaska | 3/6/23 | Isaac Smoldon
The Wolverines’ first specialty jersey auction closed this past Sunday, with the team selling the Aubri Brown Club jerseys worn during last weekend’s games against Fairbanks. The grand total of the fundraiser was $36,855, with all the proceeds going to the Aubri Brown Club, whose mission is to help families who have lost a child with emotional and financial support.
13 jerseys during the auction were sold for over $1,000, with Wiley the Wolverine’s jersey fetching the highest price at $5,000. There are still hats with the Aubri Brown Club logo for sale both online at wolverinesshop.org, or in person at the Wolverine’s den. 100% of the revenue from this merchandise will also go to the foundation while supplies last.
The next jersey auction done by Anchorage will be the final two games of the regular season, April 7th and 8th. The design honors the history and bond that Anchorage shares with the military and its service members, and shows gratitude for all that they do to defend and serve our country and state. Proceeds from the military appreciation jerseys will go to the Fisher House Foundation, a charity that builds comfort homes where military & veteran families can stay free of charge while a loved one is in the hospital.
