TAMPA BAY - The Tampa Bay Lightning, in conjunction with the Lightning Foundation, will be auctioning off a team-signed ABSOLUT Pride bottle, beginning today. The Lightning Foundation will also be auctioning off a Cory Conacher Pride Syracuse Crunch jersey and other Lightning items which will also start today. Both auctions can be found at www.Bolts.Givesmart.com and will end on Thursday, June 25 at 5:30 p.m. The winner of the team-signed ABSOLUT bottle must be 21 years or older and the auctions will benefit local LGBTQ+ non-profit charities via the Lightning Foundation.
Additionally, on Friday, June 26 at 10 a.m. the Lightning Foundation will be selling a limited number of Pride mystery pucks which will also benefit local LGBTQ+ non-profit charities. The wrapped Pride pucks are either signed by a current Lightning player or contain a notice that the fan has won a team-signed item. For every mystery puck sold, Florida Blue will make a $20 donation to Metro Inclusive Health, a non-profit organization providing Tampa Bay with quality health and wellness services that are inclusive, relevant and supportive. The mystery puck sale can be found at www.Bolts.Givesmart.com.
The Lightning were slated to host their fourth annual Pride Night, presented by ABSOLUT, on Thursday, March 12 against the Philadelphia Flyers at AMALIE Arena but the game was postponed for the NHL pause.
