The Chicago Wolves will celebrate St. Patrick's Day tonight by wearing commemorative jerseys that will be used to raise money for Easter Seals metropolitan Chicago and Chicago Wolves Charities.

The jerseys, with the help of sponsor Jewel-Osco, will be available via auction and raffle during the games as part of the team's 16th St. Patrick's Day fundraiser.
Right wing Mark Mancari, the team's leading scorer, will wear a different jersey in each of the three games and they'll be available via raffle, silent auction, and online auction.
"I am very proud to be a part of this charity event to help bring awareness to autism and other disabilities that so many people in our communities live with," Mancari said.
Wolves forwards Byron Bitz, Victor Oreskovich, and Stefan Schneider also will have their jerseys available through in-game raffles. The jersey worn by forward Mike Duco will be available via blind auction.
Fans can win all of the other limited edition jerseys during the silent auction that begins on tonight in Allstate Arena's southeast lobby and closes at the end of the second intermission on March 25.
