Every year the Harrisburg City Islanders team up with local military service members to show their appreciation and respect with their annual Community Cares Night.
This time, the Islanders efforts have gone global.
When the Islanders take on the Rochester Rhinos in the Capelli Sport Hero Cup on Tuesday, August 8, the team will have a special cheering section all the way in Afghanistan.
The Harrisburg City Islanders front office staff has sent a package to U.S. Army soldiers in Afghanistan, who are also avid Islanders fans.
Included in the package was a Capelli Sport camouflage jersey signed by the entire Islanders team along with a second camouflage jersey for the troops to sign. The Islanders will hold a separate auction for the exclusive soldier-signed jersey.
You can bid on the jerseys from now until Tuesday, August 15! Claim your Islanders game-worn jersey today!
Come out to City Island for the last match of the Capelli Sport Hero Cup featuring a T-Shirt giveaway presented by Wilco Electric and a special appearance by members of the Wounded Warriors Project.
