The Regina Pats were happy to announce they were able to donate $20,000 to the Toronto Blue Jays’ Jays care Foundation, which supports vulnerable youth across Canada.
The Pats hosted Blue Jays outfielder Ezequiel Carrera on January 6 as part of Blue Jays Night in a 6-2 win over Calgary.
They also wore special Blue Jays themed jersey’s that were auctioned off online, which was where the money was raised.
Mark Rathwell the teams VP of Communications said they are very thankful for the fans support.
“We really want to thank our fans for their support of this night, it was a special evening for our fans with Ezequiel Carrera being in town, with the special uniforms. Our fans stepped up big time supporting the auction to purchase these one of a kind collector item jersey’s,” said Rathwell.
“It’s great that we’re able to make the donation that we are, and it’s great knowing that money is going to support at risk youth around the country,” Rathwell also said.
Sam Steels’ jersey was the top seller at $1,800, followed by Adam Brooks’ at $1,550 and Wyatt Sloboshans’ at $1,500.
