IceDogs Donate $22,000 to Crohn’s & Colitis Canada in St. Patrick’s Day Auction

Niagara IceDogs
St. Catharines, Ont. – The Niagara IceDogs are proud to announce that they will be donating a record-breaking $22,000 to Crohn’s & Colitis Canada after the most successful live auction in team history.
 
The game-worn St. Patrick’s Day auctioned off jerseys were highlighted by IceDogs leading scorer Sam Miletic whose jersey went for an astounding $2,000!  Not far behind was IceDogs forward Kirill Maksimov who was able to bring in $1,750. In addition, fan favorites Ben Jones and Akil Thomas’ jerseys sold for $1,300 each.
 
So far, the IceDogs have raised $22,000 in support of Crohn’s & Colitis Canada. Funds raised will be used to invest in transformative Crohn’s and colitis research, patient programs, advocacy, and awareness. Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is the only national, volunteer-based charity focused on finding the cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and improving the lives of children and adults affected by these diseases.
 
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are autoimmune diseases that cause the body to attack itself, leading to inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Someone is diagnosed every hour.  And the incidence of Crohn’s disease in Canadian children under the age of 10 has almost doubled since 1995.
