The Chicago Wolves, minor league affiliate of the St. Louis Blues, are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day by wearing special holiday sweaters, in order to raise money for Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago and Chicago Wolves Charities.
The Chicago Wolves will wear the specialty jerseys for their home games on Saturday, March 15, Sunday, March 16, (both days in which Chicago hosts a St. Patrick’s Day parade, luckily for me I’ll be in another state/time zone from sweet home Chicago when those parades are going on) and Friday, March 21. The jerseys will be available via auction and raffle as part of the team’s 18th St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser.
Here’s a photo of the special Chicago Wolves St. Patrick’s Day jerseys.
Said Courtney Mahoney, Chicago Wolves’ senior vice president of operations. “I love the colors this year because they’re the colors of the Irish flag. I’m always impressed with the details and nuances she puts into it. I know the fans will be as excited as we are.”
