The “Margaritaville Gladiators” Jersey auction took place on Sunday, March 20 and followed the Gladiators game against the Florida Everblades. The auction raised over $19,000 for local area charities in North Georgia as part of the Gladiators Pink in the Rink Weekend.
The jerseys were worn at all three games of Pink in the Rink against the Florida Everblades. The 24 jerseys fetched an average of nearly $825 per jersey. Gladiators forward Kyle Kucharski‘s jersey took the highest bid – bringing in $ 2,100. Other winning bids included $ 1,650 for forward Danick Paquette, $ 1,600 for goaltender Chris Carrozzi and $1,000 each for forward Michael Forney and defenseman Paul Flache.
The Gladiators "Pink in the Rink" cancer fundraiser has now raised over $200,000 for local cancer charities in North Georgia over the past four seasons.
