CONDORS PARTNER WITH McDONALD’S TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE BAKERSFIELD RONALD McDONALD HOUSE
In celebration of the Bakersfield Condors’ 25th Anniversary, the Condors Community Foundation 501(c)(3) auctioned off the game worn anniversary jerseys following the final home game of the season. Half of the proceeds from the auction benefitted the Bakersfield Ronald McDonald House 501(c)(3), a place where the families of Kern County pediatric or NICU patients can go to take a break from the hospital environment.
Through the generosity of the fanbase, the CCF was able to raise $23,960 with $11,980 going directly to the Ronald McDonald House in Bakersfield to enhance the lives of the non-hospitalized part of their families and give them a sense of normalcy in a time when their world is upside down.
SPECIALTY JERSEY RAFFLES WERE A HIT FOR CHARITY
In addition to the 25th Anniversary Specialty Warm-Up jerseys, the Condors held four other specialty jersey auction nights to benefit the Condors Community Foundation. These jerseys nights were held on Military Appreciation Night, Blackout Cancer Night, Star Wars Night, and St. Patrick’s Day. The Foundation also auctioned off Seth Griffith’s All-Star Jersey in a golden ticket auction.
All told, specialty jersey auctions raised an incredible $105, 466 for charity this season.
GAME NIGHT AUCTIONS AND RAFFLES A HIT FOR EVERYONE
Throughout the course of the season, the Foundation also hosts a jersey raffle and signed auction items during every home game and all playoff games. These included signed jerseys, goal pucks, and sticks from Condors stars, both past and present. In total, the raffles raised $34,468 and the auctions garnered $19,825.67.
The Condors Community Foundation’s goal is to improve the lives of the residents of Kern County, and through generous donations and the funds raised through our community events, we can allocate money to benefit the people in our community. We are proud to serve the county of Kern and its residents and look forward, every year, to raising the money needed to better the community that supports us.
