Silent Auction to benefit the Vellinga family

Bid on Mike's championship jersey, skates and For the Love of Andrea Jersey

In conjunction with this Sunday's Bocce Tournament and Fundraiser to benefit the Vellinga family, there will be a special e-mail auction for three one-of-a-kind items.

As you know former Brahmas defenseman Mike Vellinga's wife Andrea was critically injured during the Indiana State Fair stage collapse on August 13th. Andrea is recovering, but the family has a lot of expenses and can use your help.

Up for auction are Mike Vellinga's game-worn championship jersey as well as the skates he wore. In addition, a unique For the Love of Andrea jersey (design by Jay Fletcher) will be available.

The auction will begin on Sunday, September 25th at 4:00 p.m. and will end on Sunday, October 5th at 4:00 p.m. CST. To place a bid, you can e-Mail your name, the item you are bidding on and the amount you would like to bid to:

The organizers will be as prompt as possible in returning emails notifying of current high bid amounts.
