On November 17th, Washington Capitals first-line winger Troy Brouwer suited up for the Goals For Dreams hockey game, a charity exhibition that pitted the NHL Players Association against Winnipeg Police Patrolmen. In front of a sold-out crowd at the University of Manitoba’s Max Bell Centre, locked-out stars like Jonathan Toews, Shea Weber, and Mike Richards hit the ice again and raised over $80,000 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Dream Factory.
Good news for all you Brouwer-maniacs out there: Goals For Dreams has put every player’s game-used jersey up for auction on eBay — including Troy’s — and bidding ends a little after 9pm tonight.
Brouwer’s jersey, which comes signed, is currently going for $100. Considering that a customized Capitals jersey costs $200-plus, that’s, um, a really good deal. Plus, all the money from the sale will be going to a good cause: the Dream Factory Foundation which grants the wishes of critically and chronically ill children from the ages of 3 through 18.
Get to bidding on this sweet jersey and make some kid’s dream come true. C’mon. It’s Christmas.
