The Columbus Blue Jackets invite fans to join the club in promoting environmental sustainability with a host of themed events and fundraisers in March during Green Month and Green Night (March 12), presented by ADS.
Green Jersey Raffle: In recognition of both Green Month and St. Patrick's Day, the Blue Jackets Foundation will raffle off a complete set of authentic, individually autographed green jerseys with proceeds benefiting the Blue Jackets Foundation's playground build initiative. The players will wear the Shamrock-adorned jerseys during pre-game warm-ups on Tuesday, March 12. Raffle sales open Sunday, March 3 and run through the second intermission of the March 12 game. Fans can text CBJAUCTION to 52182 or visit cbjauction.givesmart.com to participate. Raffle tickets, priced at $10, can also be purchased in-arena.
Recycle the Game Equipment Collection: Throughout the month of March, fans are encouraged to donate used hockey equipment at the Recycle the Game "green goal" collection at the OhioHealth Ice Haus. In exchange for donations, fans will receive a voucher redeemable for two tickets to select regular season games. All equipment collected will be sold at the Blue Jackets Foundation's annual equipment sale in September with proceeds being reinvested back into youth hockey in central Ohio.
Recycled Auction Items: For each home game this month, the Blue Jackets Foundation's online auction will feature at least one item that has been recycled, reused or repurposed. Offerings range from traditional game-used equipment to custom items made from broken sticks, rink glass, recycled jerseys and hockey socks. Proceeds from these items will help fund the Foundation's playground builds. For more information on Green Month activities, visit BlueJackets.com/nhlgreen.
