The Joliet Slammers presented by ATI Physical Therapy were
proud to present Easter Seals Joliet Region with a check for nearly $6,000 following Superhero Night presented by Sprint by Air Corp Wireless held on Friday, July 27.
In partnership with Sprint by Air Corp Wireless, Slammers players wore a customized superhero jersey on July 27 that was available for auction throughout the game. Over $2,000 was raised from the jersey auction benefiting Easter Seals Joliet Region. In addition, the night included the annual Guns N Hoses charity softball game between the Joliet Police Department and Joliet Fire Department. Nearly 500 tickets were sold for the charity softball game with $5.00 from every $10.00 ticket sold going back to the fundraiser. Adding to the funds raised throughout the night was 50/50 sales from the game run by the Joliet Catholic Varsity Football team, and a lottery raffle run by Easter Seals.
