Here's Your Chance To Own A Game-Worn Wolves Jersey
Jerseys to be Auctioned Off In-Arena After April 13 Phoenix Game
Minneapolis/St. Paul The Minnesota Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation will host a jersey auction after the Saturday, April 13 Phoenix game. Fans attending the game will get an opportunity to bid on the jerseys that will be worn by the Wolves players during that game. The winning jersey bidders will also get their jersey signed and their photo taken with the player.
At the completion of the game, fans will be invited to the lower bowl of the Target Center to participate in the post-game jersey auction. Rod Johnson, Timberwolves public address announcer and professional auctioneer, will serve as auctioneer with assistance from team mascot Crunch.
When a jersey has a winning bid and the payment process is finalized, the winning bidder will be escorted backstage to meet the player, get their jersey autographed and have their photo taken. All purchases will be a tax deductible donation to the Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation.
This is a unique opportunity for fans to get closer to their favorite players and to support the Minnesota Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation.
