The Sarnia Legionnaires will auction off special warmup jerseys this month, with all proceeds going to St. Joseph's Hospice.

The Sarnia Legionnaires will hold special fundraisers this month to help raise funds for St. Joseph's Hospice.

The Jr. 'B' hockey club will wear red-and-black jerseys during warmups prior to four contests, beginning with this Thursday's game (Jan. 8) against the LaSalle Vipers.

Fans will be able to fill out bid sheets in the lobby of Sarnia Arena.

All proceeds will go to St. Joseph's.

The Legionnaires will also donate hundreds of tickets to the non-profit Christina Street North facility, which serves the terminally ill. The hospice, in turn, will sell the tickets, keeping all the proceeds.

On top of that, there will be a bake sale at the rink during Sarnia's Jan. 22 home game. Once again, all profits will go to the hospice.

Maria Muscedere, St. Joseph's fund development manager, said the Legionnaires raise about $5,000 for the hospice each year.

The Legionnaires became involved with St. Joseph's after it provided care to the late Sharon Williamson, who was a part owner of the team.
