The reveal for the Pro Allstars jerseys took place at Ice Arena Wales today, with the news that #Cardiff17 has now, incredibly, passed the £113,000 mark in our tenth anniversary year.
These jerseys, as modelled by Mark Richardson and Luke Piggott of the Cardiff Devils, will be proudly worn tomorrow night as we kick off the Allstars weekend with the Pro game, as current and former hockey heroes raise money for the Ice Hockey Players' Benevolent Fund and SCIPS (Cardiff UHW neonatal unit).
The jerseys will go under the hammer at an auction in the Arena bar post game, but you can bid on any of our teams' jerseys by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each jersey has a reserve of £100. You can see the full rosters to make your choice HERE]
We would like to thank the Harbour authority for their generous support in sponsoring these jerseys.
We've seen nearly ten thousand pounds added to our total in the last week, all down to our incredible Allstars players and sponsors. This total doesn't include any ticket sales, weekend admission, jersey or 50-50 sales, or any other donations. We are hugely excited to see just how well we can do for our 10 Charities by the end of the weekend.
Allstars Chairman Paul Sullivan said, 'Once again we've run out of words to describe how incredible the effort of so many people has been. Every year we are all stunned by the commitment of our Allstars, and this year, fittingly for our tenth anniversary, has been on a whole new level.
The best part for us is that we still get to welcome everyone to Cardiff, meet old friends, make new ones, and do our best to make a difference for some great causes. The best part of Allstars is always the weekend itself and we can't wait to see events unfold.'
Tickets are on sale for the Pro Allstars game HERE and on the day.
Tomorrow night and all weekend you can visit our Charity Village in the Bar, check out the awesome range of Hockey march from Crosscheck clothing, buy an Allstars puck, Ltd edition anniversary jersey, and much more.
We can't wait to see you there!
