Last week’s online jersey auction proved to be a success for the Regina Pats. The SpongeBob SquarePants Patrick Star themed pink jerseys worn by the team during last Saturday’s win over Medicine Hat raised over $18,000 through the auction.

“The Pats have raised a total of $47,575 in support of this great cause over the last two seasons,” Pats CEO Gord Pritchard said. “We’d like to thank all the bidders who supported the Children’s Miracle Network through our auction and also thank RE/MAX, Nickelodeon and the WHL for playing an important role in helping children right here in our province.”

This marks the first of four online jersey auctions the Pats will be taking part in this season. The second one will take place during their game against the Edmonton Oil Kings on Saturday, February 10, during their Indigenous Celebration Game.
