Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa Military Appreciation Jersey Auction


Wisconsin Rapids, Wis.-Here’s your chance to win a game-worn Military Appreciation themed jersey presented by Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa!  In the off-season, fans submitted photos of military personnel who are currently serving or veterans who have served in the Armed Forces, which are featured on this jersey. Starting today, you can submit an online bid (Minimum bid starting at $65; $130 secures the jersey outright) prior to the silent auction which will be held in game on Tuesday, June 26th. The auction will end at the conclusion of the 7th inning. Fans will be able to claim their jerseys following the game. The winners do not need to be in attendance, but it is recommended. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Never Forgotten Honor Flight, which is an organization that is dedicated to providing veterans with an opportunity to fly to Washington D.C. to visit their memorials honoring their service to our country.

To place your bid, please e-mail with the following information:

  1. The player name or jersey number you wish to bid on.
  2. The dollar amount of your bid (Minimum bid is $65; $130 secures the jersey outright).
  3. Your name and phone number.

Upon completion of the game, each player will sign his jersey (if indicated during the bidding process) and a member of the Rafters staff will bring those items to the Rafthouse Team Shop at the ballpark. At that time, payment will be needed to obtain said item. If the winner is not in attendance, a member of the Rafters staff will contact you for payment and shipping info ($5 will be added for shipped orders).
