BlueClaws thank fans for their support; proceeds to benefit BlueClaws Charities relief efforts
The BlueClaws are proud to announce that the team raised $15,000 through their Restore The Shore jersey auction that ran at the team’s April 4-7 games at FirstEnergy Park. All proceeds from the auction will go directly to BlueClaws Charities Restore The Shore initiative.
At the first four BlueClaws games of the year, the team had 50 Restore The Shore jerseys, each of which included the name of one town in Monmouth or Ocean Counties that was impacted by Sandy. These jerseys were worn by BlueClaws players, coaches, and staff members throughout the weekend.Bidding, in the form of a silent auction, took place at all four games, concluding on April 7th.
“We’re very grateful for the support of our fans in this auction,” said BlueClaws General Manager Brandon Marano. “We raised a great sum of money, all of which will be given back to those among our community in need.”
The BlueClaws have five additional Restore The Shore jerseys, each of which says “Jersey Shore” on the back. These jerseys will be auctioned off online in the coming weeks. Fans that were unable to bid this weekend still have a chance to own one of these unique collector’s items. Details about these auctions will be released on BlueClaws.com, on the team’s Facebook and Twitter pages, and in Clawd’s Corner, the official BlueClaws e-newsletter.
