Wawa's Lift For the Legion Campaign Auctioning Johnny Bower Leafs Jersey

Hockey fans could get a piece of Toronto Maple Leafs memorabilia while supporting Wawa's Legion Hall.

Matthew Hart - the Project Administrative Assistant for Royal Canadian Legion Branch 429's "Lift For the Legion" Fund - explains the jersey has been put up for auction.

Hart notes the "bid box" is normally located at the Legion, while the jersey is on display in the window of Dawson and Keenan Insurance, though they'll be brought to events like this weekend's Wawa Ice Fishing Derby, the Women's Curling Bonspiel, and the Men's Curling Bonspiel, where the winning bid will be chosen on Sunday, April 14th.

Funds raised from the auction will support efforts to build a wheelchair-accessible lift at the Legion Hall - $150,000 has already been raised through a federal grant and donations, though $100,000 more must be raised.

Donations can be made via e-transfer to ar@wawa.cc or by mailing or delivering them in person to the Municipality of Wawa.
