Jersey Auction to Benefit Scholarships Begins Monday

Press Release

Everett, WA - 'Tips fans, would you like to take home a game-worn jersey of your favorite player while benefitting the Silvertips Scholarship Fund?

Starting on October 5th, and continuing through November 9th, the Silvertips will be hosting a jersey auction on the Silvertips Website. This auction, which will begin every Monday for the next six weeks, will allow you to bid on the game-worn jersey of your choice.

The jerseys will be from the 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons. Many will be game-worn jerseys of prominent ex-Silvertips, such as Leland Irving, Zach Hamill, Taylor Ellington, as well as former captains and other memorable players. Some jerseys will feature an autograph from that particular player, and all will come with a certificate of authenticity. Approximately three or four jerseys will be put up on auction each week.

Much of the proceeds will help members of the Silvertips receive an education following their playing days. For every season a player plays in the WHL, they receive a full year guaranteed scholarship, including tuition, textbooks and compulsory fees, to a post-secondary institution of their choice.

We thank you in advance for checking out our new auction, which gives you the opportunity to take home a game worn Silvertips jersey while benefitting the education and well-being of the countless players who have called Everett home!
