This weekend the Heat will be opening up the season in style with two special jerseys that will both be auctioned off and sold after the games with proceeds donating local charities.
On Friday night to open the season during the Port Proud, Stockton Proud Home Opener presented by the Port of Stockton, the Heat will be wearing special jerseys with the Port of Stockton crest on the front of the sweaters.
There will be 15 jerseys available via silent auction during the game, 10 jerseys available for purchase in the store and 11 jerseys that will be available for online bidding.
In 2016, nearly 3.9 million tons of cargo moved through the Port of Stockton, and that number grows nearly every year. The Port works with upwards of fifty-five different countries, with goods flowing in both directions. On any given day you might see organic grain coming in from Turkey, refined sulfur going out to Australia, or any other of a litany of products that are going to or coming from places all around the world.
Then on Saturday night against the San Jose Barracuda, the Heat will be wearing white Calgary Flames jersey. Another 15 jerseys will be available in the silent auction with 15 others available in the store for sale and 11 for online bidding.
