The Colorado Avalanche and Kroenke Sports Charities raised $107,190 in their Boulder Strong Auction of special player-worn warmups. All of the proceeds will go to the Colorado Healing Fund to support the needs of victims, families and the community affected by the mass shooting that took place in Boulder on March 22.
The team wore the sweaters during warmup on March 25 prior to its game against the Vegas Golden Knights at Ball Arena in honor of the 10 people that died in the shooting at the King Soopers grocery store in Boulder earlier that week. Each sweater was signed by the player that wore it during warmup.
In addition to the one-of-a-kind jerseys, others autographed items from the Avalanche, Denver Nuggets, Colorado Rapids and Colorado Mammoth were also up for auction. A team-signed Avalanche “Boulder Strong” sweater finished with the highest closing bid of $10,025.
“The proceeds received from the auction hosted by Kroenke Sports, the Avalanche, the Nuggets and the Mammoth will do so much to support the survivors, the victims’ families, and the community affected by the Boulder Supermarket Tragedy,” said Jordan Finegan, Executive Director of the Colorado Healing Fund. “
