The Quad City Mallards teamed with Genesis Health System and KWQC-TV6 to raise $15,750 for Genesis Family Connects through a game-worn jersey auction after the Mallards’ game tonight against the Missouri Mavericks at the iWireless Center.
The special edition baseball-style jerseys worn by the Mallards tonight in a 3-2 win over the Mavericks went up for bid in a live auction following that contest. The jerseys of perennially popular mascot Mo Mallard ($1,200) and goaltender Adam Vay ($950) drew the evening’s highest bids.
Tonight’s auction is the second of two for which the Mallards partnered with Genesis this season. That pair of auctions combined to raise more than $33,000. Over the last two decades, Mallards jersey auctions have raised well over $800,000 to benefit Genesis Health System charities.
